Hi all. I made this card using a set by Woodware Stamps called Boho Feathers, made for Darnell, a lovely blogging friend and who a lot of you know. Unfortunately I was a bit late sending it and I obviously wanted to make sure she had received it before showing it here.
I used three or four of my alcohol inks on a piece of glossy card, mixed with some rubbing alcohol and moved about with an air blower which I bought recently and it worked quite well...certainly easier than blowing them around with a straw. I then stamped the feathers on to it using Memento Tuxedo Black and then heat embossed using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder before fussy cutting them out.
I decided to use my Crealies rectangle dies with dots/pierced to cut a mat for the base card using a piece of white card, and extending the length to fit this slimline card. It is quite straightforward you just cut it nearly to the end then place the die back in further down making sure that it lines up well (it is easier if there is a stitched or fancy edge as it sits firmer in the pattern) Luckily it worked well and you would never know it had been extended. It takes a little time but saves having to buy lots of different sets of dies. I found a feather stencil, one from a set which I got at The Range quite a time ago, and masked around the smallest one. I used Adirondack Stonewashed Ink applied with a brush quite softly and covered the background with it.
Finally I added the feathers to the background and adhered it to the base card and then added the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed it with the Clear Gloss EP.
Thank you for looking at my blog today and I hope I'll see you again soon.
