Good morning blog friends. Don’t forget I have some blog candy over on my post of March 1st – you can still enter until midnight on March 4th. In the mean time I have a card to share with some feathery goodness using the Fine Feathers set from Waltzingmouse Stamps, I’m also over on the Waltzingmouse Inspiration blog today. Feathers are so trendy right now. I’ve seen lots of clean and simple card with feathers. As I sat down to arrange, I wanted to see if I could take the feathers and glam them up with layers and pearls.
I reached over and pulled the Fine Feathers Cut Files because I’m just no good at fussy cutting. Second to the cream color I love to create with is the mocha reminiscent of a great cup of coffee – it’s a tad bit dressier than kraft paper. By cutting the feathers and sentiments and nestling them on a mocha background, they pop off the page. On my 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ card base I layered Spellbinders 5 x 7 Mystical Embrace followed by Spellbinders A2 Divine Eloquence. It made an excellent backdrop for my stamped and cut feathers and sentiment. I finished up by adding a bow and some pearls. I get my tiny pearls from Hobby Lobby and was able to just pull off one entire line and run them along the vein of the feather for a cool embellishment.
