Pineapple and Feathers

Welcome and thanks for stopping in. Today is a scheduled post, as I'm trying to get some things done ahead. This is a card created from a UFO image colored long ago. Did a faint script stamping over the previously colored pineapple when it was rediscovered, then some sponging for the background. A little vintage color was added to the edge of the rectangle.
 
Some feather dies cut with white snippets,  sponged using a finger dauber & pale green ink, then some very dried out Novu gold mousse rubbed over the raised areas. These feathers made me think of the pineapple's green leaves.  Lastly added some clear drops.  The background was done with gold mica spray over a stencil (used the wet color left on the stencil to create this background). Don't you love it when you can make 2 backgrounds with one effort? I sure do.  This is a very simple card, but I rather liked it!
 
 
 


Ya'll have a good afternoon, stay flu & bug free. Hugs & Blessings. Come again when you have time.

  21. The die cut leaves complement the pineapple perfectly and I would have never have thought to put them together. Love the extra attention to detail with the gold mousse, script stamping and the vintage colour on the edge of the rectangle. Gorgeous card and Yes...love it when I can get two backgrounds from one effort x
