Vintage Kingfisher

I think I could play with these Artemio bird and feather stamp sets forever and never get bored.  The detail is fantastic and the birds have a lovely vintage feel to them.  I stamped the kingfisher in black Memento and coloured him with Promarkers.  The feathers were stamped in Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and coloured lightly with Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass.  I then highlighted the central spine with Anita's 3D Gloss and added a few tiny gems.
The papers are from a mahoosive bargain K&Co pack, layered onto kraft after all the edges have been distressed.  I smudged on some Distress Stickles in Peeled Paint and Broken China with my finger to two of the corners.
A few blue pearls finish it off.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
