Mixed Media Bird King Card

Sometimes it is nice to 'mix it up' a bit and I have done just that with this Mixed Media card - lots of detail with some technique added for good measure... 

...and of course there are Spellbinders Dies - the Card Creator Collection are amazing - this one is the A2 Valiant Honor.

The bird image has been stamped using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Delicata in Celestial Copper and the spots highlighted using irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Gold

The patterned paper is from my stash and has been cut out using A2 Matting Basics B Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator.  The handmade resin butterfly has been adhere onto the cork banner using liquid glue and glitter has been lightly added.

I have recycled some corrugated cardstock and Want2Scrap© bling and added it to the top right corner - I love to have little points of interest on a project,  I have also used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LEZ Runner and 3D foam squares.

The sentiment has been stamped using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink in Tuxedo Black, using the A2 Valiant Honor Card Creator Die #1 (1 being the smallest), a little bit of sponging and bling are the finishing touches.  The tag is popped up using 3D Foam Squares.
