DeNami Pin-spired #2 for September - Miss You

Hey ya'll!


I have a little creation for the DeNami Design Pin-spired DT Challenge.   I honestly design by mood and inspiration, so when this card was created I was on a CAS.  Not my normal go to style, but I am an eclectic card maker! 

Here is my take:
Here is the inspiration photo:
I started by embossing my Peacock Feathers in Gold Ink onto a white cardstock panel. I used mineral spirits and chalk to fade in the color. Lastly I added a sentiment from the Assorted Greeting Set.  To add a pop of color I added a burgundy pink scallop doily to the top. (I got as close as I could to the color in the photograph, but I just didn't have the right shade of paper in my stash).

Be sure to check out a few of my teammates who have created something fabulous with this "Pin-spired" photo.
You won't want to miss their takes!
