I love to play along with the sketch challenges at Cardabilities. The design team make such beautiful cards full of layers and embellishments enough to make me swoon. And here I come with my CAS designs, I'm sure they don't know what to make of me! I love the challenge of taking their sketches and adapting it to my style.
For this card I incorporated the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments along with the Oh Feathers challenge at City Crafters. I love a challenge where the colors are black, white and a pop of something bright and cheery.
I made a slightly grungy background then added the feathers. One embossed in white on vellum and the other stamped in hot pink-ish with a smattering of embossed black dots. I think there are dies to go along with this stamp set, but honestly sometimes I think it's easier to fussy cut them out than to try and line up the stamp and die perfectly.
Well that's it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
