Happy New Year Everybody!!!
Hope you all had a great Christmas too.
Thanks for taking the time to pop by and for all the lovely comments you left.
This is my first post for the new year and my first post designing for STAMPlorations. It is time to ring in their January challenge with the theme ‘Stamps and Feathers’.
As you can see I have also set myself the challenge to work with blue, a colour I don’t tend to use naturally.
For the above card I first stamped the light blue feathers and then stamped feathers again with Versamark and embossed tem with sparkly white embossing powder. I then used a shaving brush to bend light blue ink around the feathers to highlight them before adding a touch of dark blue ink to the edge. I stamped my sentiment in dark blue on a separate piece of card and trimmed it into a banner shape. I then layered my elements on light blue base card and added some twine and charm to finish.
For the above card I inked my feather stamp with blur ink and stamped the three feathers without re-inking in between. I then used a marker to colour the ‘a note’ part of the ‘Just a note’ sentiment from the set and stamped it in front of my feather before adding the three dots. I punched a border down one side of my light blue base card and layered as shown before adding a border and some highlights with a glitter gel pen.
For this card here I used again the stamping off technique to stamp my feathers before scoring a couple of lines and stamping my sentiment. I then layered it on my base card and added the rolled over corners and gem to finish.
Hope you enjoyed my creations. Please pop over to the Stamplorations Challenge Blog to enter your feathery creation and of course to see all the lovely projects of my DT Teamies.
