Wplus9 Designs is turning 3 and having a large celebration for the entire month of February. The challenge this week is to make a card using Wplus9 products and one of the trends showcased. I actually made this card on Sunday for the last challenge – Step it up by adding dimension. Unfortunately, I completely missed the deadline because I’m a ditz. Lucky for me, I actually did a couple of trendy things on this card, so I don't have to miss posting it to their challenge! I used misting and metallics.
I chose to work with Fanciful Feathers and Borders & Backgrounds I which is an Ikat set. I wanted an elegant, classic color combo of cream, black, gold and kraft.
So I pulled out a mist I’ve had for a few years – Memento Fireworks in Desert Sand. I saturated the largest feather die cut (the one in the back) a few times. The strange thing about this mist is that is has turned kind of green over time.
The next feather is scribbled with the Sakura Stardust pen and then I used an aquapainter to spread the glitter around. The last feather is stamped with various distress inks and painted with the aquapainter as well. I went back through and added more detail and dimension with distress markers and the glitter pen. Nice and sparkly!
Lots of twine, a button and a sweet sentiment = my kind of card. Thanks so much for stopping by!
