Shiny Feathers

This is one of my favorite cards, and I originally used it for a challenge on StampTV.  I used the GinaKDesigns / Unity Stamp set called Only You.  I love the feather, and it also has a beautiful dragonfly!

I used GinaKDesigns inks in the mini cubes because I wanted to get a blended ombré  effect, and it worked out great.   The stamping was done for each color set at one time so I could get the best blending possible.  My Misti from mysweetpetunia came in handy because I did have to do a bit of over-stamping to get the ombré  just right.  I stamped the pink one first in the middle to be able to line up the blue and green.

The colors for each feather, from the top down, are:

Blues; Blue Lagoon, Turquoise Sea and Ocean Mist

Pinks; Passionate Pink, Dusty Rose and Bubblegum Pink

Greens; Fresh Asparagus, Grass Green and Jelly Bean Green

After stamping, I took a small glue pen and just followed around the design of the feather, doing each one separately to get the best adhesive for the glitter.  I used the GinaKDesigns prismatic glitter in Frozen – it created a beautiful sparkle!    My paper choices for this were my favorites – GinaKDesigns cardstock White layer  on top, Turquoise Sea for the outline and the heavyweight base cardstock for my card base.

Be sure and check out the new release from GinaKDesigns coming out Thursday (Feb 9,2017) on StampTV at 7:00 pm Central Time.  See you at the Release Party!  Sneak Peeks are coming out now!

I think I used the word favorite several times in this post – and it really applies to this card and the supplies used.

See you all soon — Mary Kay
