Hello Crafters!

I don’t know about you but I’m ready to embrace Spring. Anytime now.

I’m waiting out the winter weather that won’t seem to leave by making rainbows in my craft room. It’s not such a terrible problem to have haha.

I really love the feathers from the Ten Things stamp set and even though I think it was originally created as a Thanksgiving set feathers are a great neutral to put on any card. I started off my stamping my sentiment for placement and then covered the entire background in those beautiful feathers.

Once I was done stamping I used Distress Oxides to watercolor each feather. Well….that’s not entirely true. I had a special guest designer who helped me out 🙂

Once the painting was done and dry I used colored pencils to help make the feathers pop. A little bit of metallic pen was added to each feather to help add some shine.

I heat embossed the rest of my sentiment onto some black paper then trimmed it into a little label. I added it to my card with some foam tape and finished it off with some clear sequins.

You can watch the whole card being made, and see my extra special guest, in the video below.

We had a ton of fun painting this card and it really does show that you can make anything work. It’s all about your approach 🙂

Thank you guys so much for joining me!

I hope you’re inspired to give at least one element of this card a try!
