Fabulous Feather



I always have a few colour combinations hanging out on my desk ready to use at any given time. A couple of weeks ago I wore an outfit with Chocolate Chip, Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise and Green Galore. Maybe not a typical clothing combo but I knew I had to incorporate it into a card. So, on the edge of my desk it sat until I felt the urge to use it.

Recently, I received a few free stamp sets from SU (thanks!) and one was Nature’s Nest. I was inspired by it because it is not my “normal” type stamp set and I could see so many uses – from adults to children and I love to watercolour. So this is my first attempt with this set.

The MOJO Monday sketch this week was my second starting point after the colour combo. Yes, I turned it on it’s side but with a long and narrow feather, it just worked better.

The base of this card is Basic Gray. I wanted a piece of designer paper that was turquoise and chocolate – didn’t have one. So I took a piece of Chocolate Chip designer paper and brayered over it with my Tempting Turquoise ink and my brayer – perfect! I then matted this on Chocolate Chip.

The long and skinny strip is Green Galore matted on Chocolate Chip.

Then for the feather piece. I stamped it in Versamark on Whisper White cardstock and embossed it. I then took coordinating colours and a Blender Pen and went to work. I used Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore and Gable Green. I mixed all the colours together to give a great look to this leaf.


I added a punched out Modern Label in textured Chocolate Chip cardstock and a Turquoise brad in one corner and rolled the edge of the other.

Lastly, I added a small sentiment. I first used a stamp from Define Your Life for the background and then stamped “kind” from Baroque Motifs. I punched it out with the small oval punch and matted it with a large chocolate oval.
