Feathers In Green And Gray!

Hi everyone! It's been a little bit since I posted! I was on a fabulous two week trip to Italy and we had so much fun! I love traveling but it is always so nice to get home to your own bed:)

While I was away I couldn't do any of the Color Throwdown challenges so I am super excited to get back to creating cards for this awesome challenge. The color scheme for this this week Color Throwdown #444 is simple and soothing and I kept my card clean and simple to match!

I used two tones of green and one shade of pale gray to stamp in my feather images. I stamped the top images first and then covered them up with a piece of paper to avoid stamping over them with the bottom images. I was actually planning a larger space between the top and bottom feathers but obviously I couldn't see very well through my scratch paper!

However, I prevailed and found a thin, one line sentiment stamp that wouldn't cover up too much of the pretty feathers. The sentiment is stamped in the same soft gray and looks awesome double mounted on green and gray card stock! I cut the main panel down a bit and added in some patterned paper to bring out the gray. I finished up with some clear green sequins for some shine!

Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
