TE Pinterest Inspired

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a super crafty day today!!! I finally cleaned my craft room enough to clear a path....I can even see the floor...LOL!!!! I hate to get it too clean because I don't want to loose my mojo....yup...clean crafty spaces strip you of all your creativity so a little clutter is good (I read that on the net so it must be true!!) !!!! Anyway....

The Taylored Expressions Baker's Dozen DT was challenged to pick a card or project from the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards for inspiration...look at the awesome card that caught my eye!!

Kerri's card:

Wispy Thank You Card by Kerri Michaud #ThankYou, #Cardmaking, #CuttingPlates

This is Kerri's beautiful card that inspired me to pull out my Wispy Wishes set..I just love the peacock feathers!! I really like the circle background, too, so.....

I decided to make a one layer card....The feathers were stamped with memento Danube Blue and Olive Grove and colored with Copics.  The background was sponged lightly using a round diecut negative as a stencil.....I wanted to create a wispy, airy circle.

The twine,  washi tape, and the sentiment from the same set finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by and thanks, Kerri, for the inspiration!!

I do believe you are 100% right, clutter is a sign of imagination - we imagine it is clean! Love both your cards, the feathers are beautiful!
