Multi-Coloured Feathers

I was up early this morning and saw the Just Add Ink challenge brief for this week and thought, why not, crafting in PJs on a weekday sounds like a great way to start off a Friday! So I hopped straight into my craft room and whipped this card up.  It's simple, but effective. And as you know, that my jam!

It's a colour challenge this week using two of the new In-Colours and black.  Well, that just screamed pops of black with those striking colours to me. 
I grabbed out the Tasteful Touches stamp set for the feather, the Pansy Patch stamp set for the sentiment, ink pads, and a sponge dauber and set to work.  This card came together so easily!  You could definitely whip up a batch of these in next to no time.

The mottled effect of the feathers is achieved by stamping first into Pale Papaya and then inking up a sponge dauber with Polished pink and dabbing it directly onto the inked up stamp.  Easy! And just look how effective it is.

My card base is 5.5" x 4 1/8", the black panel is 4.5" x 3 1/8" and the white panel is 4 1/8 x 3" (a very standard layout for me).

Head over to the Just Add Ink page and take a look at the design team's work and the other entries.  And hey - why not play along this week?  I love to see what other people submit, it gives me such inspiration.

  2. Such a fabulous card Fiona! I love the use of the Pale Papaya as your base and then the next layer of Basic Black. The two colours mottled on to the feathers gives such a fantastic effect. Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
