Fine Feathers Thank You

Fine Feathers Thank You

Happy Saturday to You! Aren't these feathers beautiful?!? I have to thank my fellow pal, Windy Ellard, for piquing my interest in the 'baby wipe technique' and for pointing me to this wonderful video by Sandy MacIver to show me how to do it!

The technique is very simple and creates beautiful results! I think you may be seeing more of it from me:) The colors I used are Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Lucky Limeade. I realize Lucky Limeade is retired, if you don't have it currently, I think that Pear Pizzazz would be a great alternative.

I used a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set to stamp my background in Hello Honey and Lucky Limeade, being sure to stamp off before stamping my background for a nice subtle look.

I found this sentiment in the Blooming with Kindness Stamp Set and it just seemed to fit the mood of the card perfectly. A subtle layer of Lost Lagoon cardstock popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals provides added visual interest.

I thought that gold would be a great accent for this card and tried to use some individual sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim but found that they were too large for my card. Then I found these little beauties in my stash, a gift from a friend. Perfect!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to get some crafty time in! I will be back tomorrow with my project for the Can You Case It challenge blog :)
