Paper Craft Crew Challenge 279 – Altenew LLC Golden Feather
Welcome back to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge! This week we have an inspiration challenge.
So…Mardi Gras. No one I know sends cards for Mardi Gras. Do people do this? I can imagine a party invitation, but not a card. And I don’t throw parties, so it’s not something I’d do. Long ago I had a stamp set for this from Kitchen Sink Stamps, but I’m not sure I have it anymore. So looking at this, I decided to use feathers in the colors of Mardi Gras, but NOT to make a Mardi Gras card. Lookie:
GOJUS! I was skeptical that this would look like anything that I would like, much less anything else, but I was really happy with the bright colors with all the white card stock.
The mix of colors where the feathers lay over each other and the big splatter from Altenew’s Watercolor frames really makes me happy. I also used My Favorite Things Distressed patterns because once I splatter, I have a hard time stopping! Adding the additional splatters with Altenew’s Warm Sunshine ink really makes this card!
I decided to use the Altenew Inline Alphabet dies for my greeting. I cut the letters three times from 110 lb. Neenah Solar White and stacked them up to get more dimension. I also added that little bit of Little B washi tape there on the edge, and it added a nice finishing touch along with the purple Baker’s twine.
A few sparkling clear sequins was just the right finishing touch! I was really pleased with how this came out.
