First, I need to tell you that this photo does not do justice to the gorgeous Charcoal Brown Pure Luxury cardstock and matching ink that I used! It is hands down my favorite Gina K color yet! I wish you all could see it in real life...so pretty! :-)
I have to tell you, I swooned just little bit when I opened up the package of stamps for this release! Wooowie! First, these flourishes from Carolyn's new Elegant Flourishes set are so beautiful! They are perfect for using alone or layering under other images (like I did in my card). The feather and sentiment are both from Melanie's new Stamper's Favorites set. The name totally fits these images...a collection of stunningly gorgeous stamps with amazing detail!
I embossed the feather using silver detail embossing powder onto vellum cardstock and then added just a little bit of color on the back. To do this, I picked up a bit of ink (Sweet Corn Gina K ink pad) using a wet watercolor brush and then painted it on to the back. I didn't want it all colored so I left some areas without color.
To finish the card, I tied some string in a bow and added a button (from the Sunrise Smoothie button collection).
