Fine-colored Feathers HSSCC#183

What do you think of this colour combination?


I have been playing with watercolor paper and re-inkers, planning for some future classes. It was just co-incidence that I had picked this exact colour range for this panel showing off an assortment of stamps from Fine Feathers. The  four feathers are stamped using Black Stazon, there is one more lovely feather in this set, a peacock feather, but I've tried for masculine with this card, and that last feather was just too pretty! The water color panel is layered onto a strip of Crushed Curry and a Basic Black that was given a zig zag edging with a Finishing Touches Edgelit. A Naturals Designer button threaded with linen thread has been placed to draw attention to the greetings, Happy Birthday from Itty Bitty Banners and Celebrate from Starburst Sayings. Both of these come with Framelits to make cutting out a breeze.

This is the first time I have found this particular challenge, Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Amy White led me to it. There are some great cards there using these colours, pop on over and take a look for yourself...

Hoping for a fun, crafty week (in between my real job)
