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