Wow! Aren't all of those fountain pens gorgeous! I have a real "thing" for beautiful fountain pens and Audrie sure pinned some beauties! I was really inspired by THIS. I love the metallic tones.
I found a really pretty metallic paint chip in this lovely bronze color. I stamped the text with the cocoa ink then stamped some of the leaves on top using the chestnut ink.
On the die cut leaves, I stamped them with the gold ink & sprinkled half with gold embossing powder and half with copper embossing powder then heat embossed. I did the same with the greeting & die cut with a rectangle die. The leaf square die cut was used on some metallic brown card stock & resized it to make it into a rectangle instead of a square.

Your card is truly a spectacular interpretation of that fountain pen. I love all the textures, colors, and techniques that you used in your inspiration card (thanks for sharing the "how" too)! Thank you for joining as our guest hostess, and for inspiring us all today! Hugs, Audrie
