It’s Kelly here and I’m sharing three cards with you today!
Let me tell you how I ended up with these guys. First , I was thinking Thanksgiving . . .hmm . . .Grateful . . Thank you . .no . . .leaves . . .been done . . .oooh feathers. Yeah, feathers. I pulled out the Feathers set by Hero Arts.
Now how do I use these feathers differently? They were super trendy last year. People did a million things with feathers. I decided to really challenge myself and go gender neutral. I struggle with anything that isn’t flowers or rainbows. You’ve seen my posts, you know. Ha!
This happened as it usually does for me. I made one card and then two others to coordinate. I can’t help but make them match 🙂 I chose the Hero Arts Be Happy set for my sentiments because not only are they bold enough to carry a card they are appropriate for anyone.
Here we go!
I lightly traced a circle onto my card base. I stamped one of the smaller feathers into a wreath by lining up the quill along the edge of the circle. I stamped one in Memento Black ink full strength then the next in second generation. I chose this ink for two reasons: 1. I wanted to color with copics. 2. It’s not a bold black. After I was done stamping I colored the feathers with my copics and stamped my sentiment. The sentiment was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink because it’s really bold. It’s my favorite for sentiments 🙂
One of the best things about timeless sets like these feathers is you can color them however you want. Whatever design whether simple or intricate carries well. I masked the scrolls off the sentiment for a cleaner look. It’s awesome how you can get a different look just by doing a little masking.
I went a little bolder with my design here because the feather is so big it can hold all those colors without looking busy. Again I masked the scrolls off the sentiment to keep it all CAS. I think this one is probably my favorite. What about you?
