You Make My Heart Soar

Hi everyone,
A quick post today to share a card I created for two challenges: CASology Challenge for the cue card Ombre and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for the theme Clean & Simple. 




I started by embossing the feather onto a white panel, then stamped it with three PTI inks - Tropical Teal, Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist. I added a strip of Hawaiian Shores cardstock on each side, stamped the sentiment and placed a few clear sparkly sequins (from an old SSS card kit) to jazz it up...Done and dusted!

It's difficult to see the embossing  around the feather, so here is a close-up:

 

I hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Your ombre is just gorgeous. I see that we picked the same color scheme. The feather is absolutely the perfect image to use for this CAS beauty. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Perfect choice of an 'Ombre Subject' Barb, this feather looks like it is floating on the card and in my fave colour too! Thanks again for your visits to my blog and your kind words, you really made my day.

Barb, your feather is ombre-awesome! Such a perfect image for this technique...and you embossed first, then stamped? Oh my...sounds like a series of steps that would have me trying this umpty-teen times before getting it right. So pretty...and the sequins are the perfect accessory...Happy sighhh...
Hugs~c
