Visible Image Stamps, Distress Inks, Imagination Crafts Mica Powders, Glossy Accents on a card.

Hello again friends and fellow bloggeee's
 and to my New Followers, a very warm welcome to you.

I can't believe another week has gone by, I've been very busy crafting, but unfortunately I can't share them with you yet, so watch this space, lol.

  Although I can share my newest make for 
which is an 8"x 8" male themed card, and for this one I used the fabulous
 Free Your Imagination set of stamps,

I find this set very versatile, it can be used in so many different ways.
For this background I used the sentiment, stamped it in Versamark, and heat embossed with clear powder, then with three different colours of Distress Inks, I graduated them across the card from light to dark, whilst they were still wet, I stamped the ink blot using just water, to give a bleached out effect.

Once the background had dried, I used Black Archival and stamped the inky eagle, the birds and the ink blots. 
To give more definition to the eagle, I gave him a coat of glossy accents, also the blots.

The feathers were stamped in versamark onto black glossy card, when they was dry, I gently brushed mica powder over them, using three different colours. I coated them with glossy accents to seal in the mica, and left them to dry before cutting them out and shaping them, I also added a touch of Treasure gold to the edges  to give a little extra umph, lol. 
I was quite pleased with the metallic look.

The card was then finished off with the sentiment, stamped onto shrink plastic.
