STAMPlorations inspiration #72

It's time for more inspiration from the STAMPlorations girls and trust me, there's plenty of inspiration to be found. Take a look. Tomorrow. I'm posting early to squeak in before Colour Q closes its doors ;)


I found my inspiration in one of the newly released sets designed by Shery, Trendy Feathers 2, which as you can see has feathers that are mirrored images of each other. At least as far as the shape goes. So what does that mean? That, my friends, means more bang for your buck!


 Cuz you can use feather #3 to stamp an entire card. And then come back with the reverse of feather #4 to color one of them. In tricolore, Broken China, Abandoned Coral and Delicata Gold, even! The only other step was to add a heat embossed snippet with my sentiment and a few sequins. See that sparkle on the gold tip of the colored feather?


I looked to the cool colors at Colour Q for inspiration. I think they fit this design so well.


And I'm sharing my card at:
A Blog Named Hero - CAS
Virginia's View blitz link-up party - Friendship


Appreciate your visit. Enjoy your day!

So pretty, your spot-coloring!

So effective! That's a bonus I hadn't realised, getting matching solid shapes for each feather by reversing!
