I chose to use the Funky Feathers Stamp Set for my card today. This was one of the first CAS sets I bought and love it till this day!! To start, I cut down some white cardstock to 4.25 X 4.25 inches. I took a ruler and drew a line corner to corner to find the centre.
I chose one of the stamps and placed it in one of the sections. I stamped then rotated the cardstock 180 degrees so I got the identical placement on the opposite side. You do have to remove and place the stamp for the opposite sides.
I flipped the stamp in the opposite direction and lined it up directly over the pencil line in between the stamped feathers. After picking the stamp up with the Misti door, I erased all the pencil lines and continued stamping in this manner.
This is what I ended up with. I did stamp the feathers in the corners with an acrylic block to finish the pattern. I should mention that the stamping was done on Bristol Smooth paper with Versaclair Ink (which is waterproof when dry).
I coloured the background with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens for a light watercolour look. I stamped one of the cute seagulls from the Gull Gang set, also on Bristol and added a bit of grey ink to create some shadows and orange to the feet and beak.
I used foam tape to mount him to a zig zag circle die cut from vellum. I also used foam tape to adhere the circle to create quite a bit of dimension. I wanted the seagull to stand out from the busy background.
I white heat embossed the sentiments onto black cardstock and trimmed each word out separately. And of course, used foam tape to adhere! To add a little bit more colour, I die cut a few hearts and used a pink Tombow marker to add some colour.
I added the panel to a 4.25 X 4.25 inch card base. I added the hearts with foam tape and also decided to add some clear droplets. A bit of sparkle to the hearts and some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the feet and beak of the gull, finish this card!!
This would make a great Valentine but I think could be given any time of year!!
