missing you...

Hello friends!!   Returning to my love affair with feathers I have a card today that I made for several challenges, Time Out (birds of a feather), CAS(E) this Sketch (layout) and Color Throwdown.  ETA:  Realized that I can add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use kraft!


I originally I was going to use my Four Feathers set from Stampin Up!, but after doing a test run I realized that I needed to use clear stamps in order make sure I got the image within the cut out area.  So I went with my PTI Feather Finery set.  I used the smallest feather die to make the cut outs on my kraft panel (I used kraft as a neutral to provide more contrast to the feathers that were stamped on the cream card base) and then stamped the feathers using light yellow and dark orange inks (SU! So Saffron and CTMH Autumn Terracotta).  The sentiment (from the Altenew Label Love set) was stamped using Hero Arts Soft Olive ink and trimmed out. I popped up the die cut panel over stamped images and then adhered the sentiment and two little birds (also stamped in Soft Olive).  A few clear sequins finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream, SU! kraft; Stamps:  PTI Feather Finery & Altenew Label Love; Dies:  PTI feather dies; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Close to My Heart and Hero Arts; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh
