I can't tell you how excited I was to finally get to use this stamp set and framelit bundle* and save 15% !! I love feathers and I think they can look amazing on projects, if you get them right. In fact, I just bought a package of the real thing to add to some of my cards and other crafts. But the moment I saw Four Feathers* stamp set and Feathers Framelits*, I knew I had to have them. They arrived just last Friday, and this was my first opportunity, with the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #215:
*Found in the 2014 Holiday Catalogue. Available to order starting Aug. 28, 2014.
Don't you love those colours together?? With the black, it really adds drama and focus!
- My favourite images from Four Feathers, are the spotted feathers! I wanted to use the framelits to create a negative space and my first thought was to stamp a landscape behind the feather-shaped openings and let the space reveal the landscape, but I really had nothing small enough to work well. So I used the negative space to trace the shape onto Whisper White. I then stamped the images, lining them up with the traced edges and erased the pencil lines. I mounted the Basic Black over the Whisper White using Stampin' Dimensionals to increase the recessed look of the feathers.
- The sentiment is from A Happy Hooray stamp set. I punched it out using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and made the mattes using a 1 3/4" Circle Punch to punch the Basic Black circle and the second smallest Starburst Framelit to create the Strawberry Slush starburst.
- A little balance was needed and some Strawberry Slush sequins from the 2013-15 In Colour Sequin Assortment did the job admirably!
