Letting my friends know how much I appreciate them is my main reason for cardmaking. Giving a card to someone, which took you quite some time to create, is a valuable gift. Especially nowadays, when hectic schedules and stress are our daily companions.
Time: 30 min + dry time
I created a simple background on white cardstock, using a dauber and my Radiant Neon 4 Warm inkpad. The dauber creates the perfect circles and you can vary the opacity by pressing it down harder.
I tried to achieve some kind of Bokeh effect by overlapping some of the circles.
Using my StazOn Jet Black inkpad, I stamped some small feathers onto the spaces between the circles.
I cut a large feather from white vellum, which was meant to compliment the background, but not completely hide it. To add some color to the feather, I masked the bottom with adhesive tape and generously applied silver metallic Creative Medium. I carefully removed the adhesive tape and let the color dry completely (about 15 minutes).
Adhere your stamped piece to a coordinating cardstock frame and adhere both to your card base. I used a couple of different pieces to create my sentiment and embellished with a yellow rose.
This could also be a fun card for a graduate to give her BFF!
