SAF 2017: Feathers
This was a fun challenge! I enjoyed making the faux leather paper with Cocoa Bean cardstock as instructed by Ashley Cannon Newell. The texture is awesome. I already had glycerin on hand and process was very easy. It just needs time to dry.
I cut my faux leather piece with a stitched rectangle die from Noted: Scalloped A1 by Papertrey Ink. It fits perfectly inside the Mix & Mat: Herringbone frame cut from Dark Indigo cardstock. I love discoveries like that! I cut the photo corners from Dark Chocolate cardstock.
After stamping the sentiment from Year of Psalms: March in Cocoa Bean ink, I glued my layers together. I stamped the birdcage images from Love Birds in Classic Kraft ink on a Kraft card base in a staggered pattern, adding the birds in the same ink. Then I sponged Cocoa Bean ink around the edges and added my framed panel to the card on an angle.
I stamped the feathers, also from Year of Psalms: March, in Tropical Teal ink on Kraft cardstock and stamped the vines with Pinefeather ink. After hand cutting the feathers, I glued them around the sentiment on the faux leather piece.
The finished design is very masculine and makes a great sympathy card. You see other projects using this technique here at Nichole Heady's blog.
