You Tickle My Fancy

Hi everyone,
I created this card for 2 challenges. The first one is Less is More, and our assignment is to create a card with a dark background and a splash of color. The 2nd challenge is the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge , where we are asked to create a Clean and Simple fave! 

I swiped my Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink onto white cardstock, and die cut the feather, then stamped it in Versamark ink and used Holographic embossing powder to give it lots of sparkle. This is the first time I’m using my new Clearly Besotted stamps and dies, and I’m very happy with the quality and beautiful, intricate designs!

I wasn’t sure if it would be hard to see the shimmer from the embossing powder above, so I took a close up:

Well, that’s it for me. I hope everyone is having a great day ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!
