Fine Feather

The CAS Mix Up Challenge for July is stamping and Capture d’écran 2016-08-23 à 11.55.25
markers + my choice …may I say choices? (heat embossing, vellum and die-cutting)

I started by inking up the Stampendous “Peacock Feather” stamp with Tombow markers #133, #173 and #346.  Spritzing it with a little water I stamped on Bristol paper.  The image is clearer than on cold press watercolour paper and just as thick.  While wet, I dotted certain areas with Tombow # 565 to give the feather depth and dimension.  Once dry, to sparkle it up, I carefully used stickles.  This loosened up the hard edges so a little moves alot, LOL.

Using Nellie Snellen’s multi-frames, simple because I love crooked edges, I die-cut my feather and aqua vellum. I attached these two pieces with an eyelet making sure that the beaded wire was fasten underneath (card jewelry 😉 ).  The background piece of Bristol paper was white embossed using the same stamp.  “Pour Toi” stamped in black means “For You“!  Happy cardmaking!

  3. Such a fantastic image and looks amazing with the spritz of water. Love your tone-on-tone stamped background that adds texture and depth. The jewelry wire and beads are just the perfect accent. Amazing design Joanna!! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
