Tickled Pink

Hi everyone ~
For this week’s challenge at Muse Card Club, our inspiration card was created by the incredibly talented 'Vicki Dutcher’. While I don’t usually make cards with lots of layers, I love Vicki’s design, and quickly pulled out my new PTI feather stamps and dies to create my card:





I stamped the feather and 2 panels in Versamark and used Clear Embossing Powder before applying ink. I then layered all of the elements and placed them on an embossed panel.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments...it really makes my day!
Barb

Wow! What a gorgeous card--STUNNING!!! So elegant and sweet at the same time. Love the embossing technique you used prior to inking the feather. Hope all's well, my friend!!! GOD's best!! XOXO

Gorgeous colors together, perfect layering.

Laura B. said...

Lovely layers! Such a pretty embossed feather!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Barb, your layers are sensational!! You have a knack with this style of card, too, and I love what you've done!!

BTW, you mentioned that "was a lot of new stuff" about my 100th NBUS post, and I just wanted to clarify that NBUS isn't about using NEW stuff, it's about using virginal stuff. Sadly, I have gathered a lot of product over the 10-11 years and some of it has just languished here and never seen ink - that's just not right! So that's the point of NBUS, new schtuff or old schtuff, it doesn't matter. I hope that makes sense! Hugs, Darnell
