A Gaggle of Geese

More fun with some of my new SECC goodies, including one of my Mum's new Imagination Crafts dies, this beautiful geese silhouette.  I cut it in kraft and used a little gold gilding wax here and there to highlight some areas.  The background was done with a wash of Aquatints, from the Landscape set.
 I used a 7x7 card blank so I'd have plenty room to showcase this lovely die, and these pretty papers, also a new purchase, they're Lili of the Valley, Enchantment.  I've used a couple of other new dies on this card too, a Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels 1 die, and Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms dies, I've also used the stamps to go along with these.  The Joanna Sheen ivy die was in my collection already, it's one I use time and time again.  The birthday wishes tag was stamped with a Lili of the Valley stamp, guess what?  It's from my SECC haul too!  To finish, I layered up some ribbon, added a triple bow, and embellished the corners with gems and doodling.
