blue feathers...

Hey friends!!   Have another card to share for one of PTI's 8th anniversary celebration challenges.  This card is for the day 8 blue ombre challenge.   The layout is loosely based on the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch so I will be posting it to that challenge, as well.


I took the path of least resistance and kept my ombre look very simple.  I stamped the middle sized feather from Feather Finery using three different shades of blue ink (SU!'s Marina Mist, Baja Breeze and Soft Sky).   To jazz things up a big I added a few clear sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SSS fog; Stamps:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Sequins:  Pretty Pink Posh
