Today I’m joining Papertrey Ink for a group post featuring the new Feather Finery stamp set. The design team was challenged to find a piece of inspiration on Pinterest or some other source and use that as the jumping point for two projects. I saw this stunning watercolor artwork on and the rest is history. Isn’t is gorgeous?I couldn’t wait to try some watercoloring with these beautiful feather images.I embossed the feather in clear and then washed over it with some gradient watercolors. I had to make my card slightly taller than normal to accommodate the sentiment which is from the new Four Square stamp set.
Next, I wanted to see what it would look like to watercolor with the bird image in the Feather Finery set with more color variation like in the inspiration piece.
I embossed the birds in clear and washed over them with various colors. By the way, the watercolors that I used are from Michael’s and they are about as cheap as watercolors can get, but they do just fine by me.
For my last card, I embossed the feather in white on the card base and on three separate strips of cardstock.
I layered the strips together added a sentiment from the Heart-2-Heart #4 stamp set.
Be sure and check out what the rest of the design team created, and thanks so much for stopping by!
