Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop: Theme - Colouring

Image may contain: text

Welcome to the monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer (The Crafty Thinker) from Australia.  Please remember to click on the next person in the line up at the end of my post to continue enjoying all the wonderful projects in the hop.  

Our theme this month is Colouring and I have chosen to use a combination of Brusho Crystal Colour and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

Adding brusho to the Just Add Color DSP creates a really interesting background

It was an experiment that I wasn't sure was going to work but I'm quite happy with the outcome!

I cut a piece of the Just Add Color paper for my background and sprinkled on some yellow and blue Brusho powder.  I then spritzed it liberally with water, gave it a couple of swishes with a large damp brush and then left it to do its thing.

Dimensionals at the top of the feathers provides depth and interest to the card

While the background was drying, I used the Stampin' Blends to colour some feathers from another piece of the Just Add Color paper and then fussy cut them.

When applying the feathers to the card, I put some glue on the quill ends and added some mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the tops to provide some depth and interest.

Thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoyed this card.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer - please see the list below and click on the next person on the list to hop through all of the people to see all of our projects.  You don't want to miss any!
