This A2 size card was made for the CTMH card swap shown in a previous post. Here are details for making this card.
While playing around with this stamp set, I had an idea of using the feather to create a frame. I stamped it 4 times with black pigment ink on watercolor paper, and heat embossed the feather outlines with clear embossing powder. Then watercolored the feathers with a wash of Pacifica, Lagoon and Pansy inks. I fussy cut the feathers. Next I stamped the sentiment with black pigment ink onto Lagoon watercolor paper from the Adventure Fundamentals paper pack, and heat embossed in clear. I colored the inside of the words with Shin Han markers. For the back ground, I randomly stamped the feather onto White Daisy card stock with Lagoon, Pansy and Pacifica colors. The Pacifica is so bold, I used second generation stamping for this color to soften it.
To put the card together, I matted the background with a piece of plain Pacifica and glued the matted piece onto A2 size White Daisy card base. I arranged the cut feathers around the sentiment and glued them in the center but used foam dots in the corners to give them more movement and dimension. Lastly I glued the framed sentiment piece onto the matted background. Voila!
