Standing Out

Welcome

This is one of the cards I taught at my class last week - using the technique of die cutting layers of tissue,  then water colouring  the die cuts.  Here is the video tutorial


I embossed the background with a freebie folder from a magazine.


I typed up and printed out the sentiment without really thinking too much about the accuracy of it, but later I suspected I had misquoted it, so looked up the quote and ooops, so I re-typed it and replaced the original!


I didn't post the card for a few days, and then inspiration hit and I added the bling to the coloured feather... 


In my haste to get it ready for the post, I forgot to get a full photo of the altered card front 😒


I finished the inside with washi tape and the birthday greeting.

Those coloured feathers look stunning! (what reminds me that I have an idea for a feather card in my head now for 2 months and still not found time to make it).
Great to put them on that background and a beautiful quote! Would be nice to follow your class in person, but will enjoy the video for now... Hugs, Gerrina

First off, I love this card! The sentiment is perfect and I love how the embossing folder compliments the feathers perfectly. Loving the added bling down the feather too, that just makes those feathers stand out even more. Love how they came out with all the color. Will have to go watch the technique. Hugs, Brenda
