birds of a feather...

Hey there... wow we are having some absolutely dropdead amazing weather here in Western Washington!!  YAY!!   More often than not our weather is kinda yucky around 4th of July so hoping that this lovely weather lasts until then.  Anywhoo... have a card to share that I made for the current AEI{heart}U challenge to use gold.  I will also be popping this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge:  white.

I started with a white cardstock base and adhered two different matte gold washi tapes along one side.  A piece of white cardstock was trimmed to 3 3/4 by 5 1/2 and adhered to the card base.  The piece was then flicked with a mixture of Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink and water.  I die cut the tag using my Reverse Confetti Tag Me die and stamped it with the sentiment (from the AE set Love Notes) using black ink.  The final portion of the sentiment was stamped in the Galaxy Gold, trimmed out and popped up.  Two feather were also stamped in Galaxy Gold, trimmed out and popped up.  I tied some gold/off white baker's twine in a bow, adhered the piece to the card front and then added some flicks of the ink/water mixture to the tag.    Thinking I'm going to also enter this in the CASology challenge as the cue word is "float" and well... my little feathers look like they are floating!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps Avery Elle Love Notes; Ink:  Brilliance and Memento; Washi Tape:  Stampin Up!; Die:  Reverse Confetti; Baker's Twine:  Stampin Up!
