Pearls & Feathers


This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge is Just Add a Pearl.  I took the opportunity to create a card for my sister's birthday. 


I used a lovely blue glimmer mist combined with a brown chalkboard mist.  I started with multiple layers of old book pages and music sheets. I sprayed them with blue glimmer mist and add a touch of yellow.  I then sprayed over the surface using perfect Pearls Mister.


I misted my flowers with the same combination of inks.  I added a stamped clock in the background and a flourish.  Then layered in pearls, flowers, feathers and wooden clocks.

The birds are stamped and colored to coordinate into the scene.  I think my Sis will like her card.

Your flowers are simply elegant. I also love the bird nestled among the flowers! And the clocks in the background, among the flourishes really stand out. Beautifully done card, Suzz! <3 Candy

  20. As soon as I saw this card I was blown away. Even though the card seems dense with imagery, textures and embellishments it still has a light airy feel to it with the use of your soft blues and the floating pearls. A stunning card for a very lucky sister.
