orange feather...

Hello!!  Hope your weekend is going well.  Our crazy Washington fall weather is here and if I had the time to make something I would, but unfortunately I don't... boo hoo!!  I did squeeze in a little crafty time on Friday afternoon and created this funky little card.   When I saw the layout for CAS(E) this Sketch I just had to play along and yep... I used a feather!! I have had PTI's What the Doodle: Feather for ages and finally got to ink it up.  I stamped in on watercolor paper using VersaMark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  My colors come from this week's Color Throwdown.  I pulled out my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to get the vibrant orange I wanted, as well as the dark navy.   I applied some clean water to my feather before mixing the orange paint with water and covering the embossed feather.  Once it was dry I die cut it with the matching die.  Along one side of a panel of watercolor paper I stamped a small feather from the same set using VersaMark, applied white embossing powder and heat set.  Then I did the same process using the dark blue color.  Once the panel was dry I trimmed it down to fit my kraft cardstock base and stamped it with the sentiment from the set.  Because the panel warped a little I used sticky back fun foam to adhere it to the card base.  A little bow was tied from some orange hemp twine, adhered and I was down.



Hope you have a wonderful day...


Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft, Ranger watercolor; Stamps and dies:  PTI; Inks:  VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark watermark; Watercolors:  Kuretake Gansai Tambi; Hemptique twine
