Crimble Cards - Venezia Bird

Hi ... I made my tag on TIO #26 with this image and liked it so much I decided to do my crimble cards with it, so here is a very small selection of the colours. I used alcohol inks on photo paper, and stamped the birdie, from Crafty Individuals, in black. The scrolls are coloured with various cosmic shimmers, brushed over a layer of sticky stuff, heated like ep after stamping with verasmark. This makes them permanent and removes the need to fix - so well worth using... I got mine from Stamp Addicts, by Judikins.... great product!!
Next week, over on TIO, there will be a Christmas theme for 2 weeks, so why not have a go? Then it will be New Year for a couple of weeks. By then, I will be back from visiting members of my new prospective family in the Canaries!!! Bit of sun and TLC will do no harm what-so-ever!!
What think you???
Thanks for looking

Hi Frankie,
I so like these cards, love the stamp.
Can I check what you did when you used the sticky stuff from Stamp Addicts, do you stamp with this, then use the mica's before heat setting.
I have just bought this plus the embossing powder from them, however when i stamped with sticky stuff my mica's brushed off.

Lovely cards Frankie, and all different colours.

Lucky you getting away for some Sunshine, definitely no harm in that at all:)

Hi Frankie. These make gorgeous Christmas cards. I love the inked background, it makes them so vibrant.
The Canaries, hey!!! Just think of us in the cold!!!
Thank you for your lovely comments. I've had that Santa stamp for years and it's a wood mounted one, but I have seen it this year on a set of acrylic stamps, but can't remember the make. If I see it again, I'll let you know.
Have a great Christmas.
