Monochrome Elegance

Deco DelightThis is a card that came together EXACTLY how I pictured it!!!! Usually the creative juices start flowing in all directions, but not this time!  The image is from Rick St. Dennis, and was a challenge to me because of all the folds in the cape and gown.  I dragged out my Spectrum Noir pens, in the ice gray tones and got to work….. After coloring it, I thought it could use some glitz and bling, so added some black, pewter and silver glitter to the design in the gown.  I ran an edge of pinstriping tape around the image and stamped a birthday sentiment on it.  I stamped and embossed the 2 feathers (from a set by ???); one in black and one in sparkly silver, then fussy cut them out.  I layered everything up on some coordinating DPs, and added some corner accents, and a sheer bow with a vintage button in the middle.
