Feathers Two Ways!

Hi everyone! I have two cards today, both created for the new Color Throwdown Challenge in soothing shades of gray, yellow, blue and green! I started out by die-cutting some feather shapes and couldn't decide which I liked better so I decided to show them both!

The first card features the feathers die-cut from white card stock and colored with Distress Inks and stencils. I layered these over a soft gray background that also has a muted stamped image. For contrast, I stamped the sentiment in black and added in black hemp cord as well!

The feathers for the second card were die-cut from colored card stock and then texture embossed for visual interest. I inked the edges a bit so they would really stand out against the white background which was also embossed in dots and highlighted with some simple twine. I split up the front panel using a bracket die and only partially embossed the bottom piece to leave room for a sweet sentiment!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!

Supplies Used:
Bazzil card stock
Lifestyle Crafts 'Spotted' embossing folder
Memory Box Texture 'Diamond' stencil
Studio Calico 'Mr. Hueys Chevron' stencil
Bead Landing hemp cord
