Today I’m playing along with the Just Add Ink Challenge 549. The challenge was to choose two elements and include them in your design. I chose feathers and leaves and took the choose two theme a bit further by including two shapes and two colours into my design.
The wreath of feathers is a stamp from Creative Stamping Magazine issue 93. I stamped the image and then heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, The embossed image really stands out from the paper. I die cut the wreath using a stitched circle die and layered it onto my square background.
The background papers were layered in the opposite direction to the wreath to add contrast. The leaves were randomly stamped in all four corners using Chipped Sapphire distress oxide ink.
To complete the card I stamped the sentiment in the middle and added a few faceted gems for that bit of sparkle.
“Never give up on things that make you smile”
A great sentiment and definitely one for us crafters.
