Vintage bird card


Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creation for the Mid month design over at Arty Divas.

I have created a vintage card using this beautiful bird image, which I also altered by using a text stamp along with black soot distress ink. 

Here I have added some gold leaf flakes along with cosmic shimmer acrylic glue. I found this glue to be the best to use. I dusted the excess flakes off with a soft paint brush. 

I have also adhered a Grunge number label behind the bird image. 

This beautiful paper is from Pink Monarch Prints.
The vintage music sheet is from My Porch Prints.

There is still time left to join in with the current challenge over at Arty Divas.

The DT would love to see your lovely creations! 

Thank you so much for stopping by the Den! I really do appreciate your visit! See you on the next post.
