Just A Note Feathers...TIME OUT Challenge #92~Inspired by Words

Hello,

I'm back with a reminder post and card in my role as a guest designer for the current TIME OUT Challenge #92~Inspired By Words.  In case you haven't joined us yet (there's still time!) or need a refresher, the quote to spark our creativity is:

Paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than its feathers.”


Once again, I've focused on feathers, inking up a trio of pretties from STAMPlorations Vignette Trendy Feathers for the background, using my 'this year' fall palette of teal, purple and orange, with a whisper of gold embossing, as seen in the fourth, intricately detailed feather, which has a a solo performance on a smaller stage.


Vellum rarely appears on my cards (scares me!), but I gave it a go as a 'curtain' between the panels and a place for the embossed sentiment. Kinda worked...hmmm.  Still too tricky for me to make a habit of using it, though.

Once again, a from-the-heart THANK YOU to the TIME OUT team for this wonderful opportunity! To everyone stopping by to visit - thank you and please be sure to play along; this quote truly does have a plethora of possibilities!

  2. Such a pretty card, Carol. You did really well with the vellum. Maybe if you use it a bit at a time you'll get more comfy with it? If not, oh well, you make pretty cards without it anyway! Thanks so much for sharing this beauty and have a happy day! Hugs! :)
