Words of Wisdom

Greetings! Been under the weather for the last 36 hours. I don't usually get sick, so it really threw me for a loop. It took me most of the day to get into my studio, but sick or not, a card was calling me! This card is for the Gingersnap Creations Challenge - Words of Wisdom. I immediately thought of the Typography plate by Artistic outpost. I stamped it in Black Memento ink and then cut it apart and matted the words with black paper. I layered a doily to the card front, and stamped my image, from the Think and Wonder plate, also by Artistic Outpost and added soft color with PanPastels. The bird is from Birds of a Feather, by Artistic Outpost is colored with Copic Markers. Embellishments include lace trim , pearls and seam binding fashioned into a bow.Pin It
