Guest posting for Emerald Creek Designs

I am so excited to be guest posting for Emerald Creek Designs today.  Emerald Creek is an online store that specializes in embossing powders, stamps, and carries a ton of Ranger product. 
The current challenge they have running is Blast from the Past-Anything Goes

 I decided to take a piece I still love, but remake it using Emerald Creek Supplies and see what I could come up with.
Here is the original.  It's very soft and feminine.  I still have it hanging in my craft room.  

I wanted to have the remake be a little bit darker, kind of like her bad big sister. My more recent work has a much looser look.  I am loving splatters and drips.  I have been using my fingers to spread on inks, stains, and paints.  It doesn't look pretty when I have to go out, but it sure is fun.  
Her wings are so cool.  I used the Charred Gold embossing powder and this stuff rocks.  It's super chunky and you can layer it on really thick.  It moves around so you can create drips and waves. 
The flowers have some sprinkled in the centers too.  Some of the petals were dipped in the Soft Fallen Snow Embossing powder for an added layer.  The leaves were embossed with Vintage Ivy. The bottom corner has some Hammered Metal to mimic the metal corner I used in the original piece.  

Here's one more close up.  I hope you liked my redo.
