Layers of Color Rise & Shine

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well! It seems to be flying by!

I made this card for the Midnight Madness Sketch 52. I used my Layers of Color Art Stamp set, Rise and Shine. This set is so fun to play with and totally different for me! I embossed this image in copper, though I can't seem to show that in the photo. I then colored it mainly with Copics, though the sun is done with chalks. The chicken wire is stamped with Brilliance Silver. I did lots of distressing and sponging on this one. The base is Bazzill, then the red is Provocraft and embossed with the CB Distressed Folder. The cream paper is Papertrey Vintage Cream and the tan is a scrap of K&Co. I added netting and some raffia which I attached to my tag through a large eyelet.

I am also entering this in the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - different (mesh and raffia)
Quizotic - how distressing
Stampavie - distressing

Thanks for looking! Have a blessed day!
