Totally Gorjuss - Show A Feather!

Good Morning!
Before I start I'd just like to quickly mention that I added MORE ITEMS to my Craft Items for Sale page yesterday, so if you fancy a bargain take a peek!

This week's challenge at the TOTALLY GORJUSS CHALLENGE BLOG is 'Show A Feather!' As soon as I saw this challenge I knew exactly what to use, I hadn't used my feather stamps for almost a year so it was a good excuse to dig them back out!

I decided to go for a C&S style to keep all the focus on the delicate feathers. I also used the Technique of 2nd & 3rd Generation Stamping which is where you carry on on stamping a second and third time without re-inking the stamp. Resulting in a gorgeous faded effect.

This card is so absolutely unique and creative! I've never seen anything quite like it! I'm a color-holic, so I admire artists who can pack a punch with such a simple color palette. You nailed it! The ombre effect on those feathers was so lovely and gave the card such a sense of movement. It is elegant and perfect in every way and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
