For this card I actually have a bit of a tutorial for you to create the fun colored embossing look that I used on the feathers. I used the Falling Feathers set and the Friends and Family Sentimentals for my card today!
To begin, I stamped and embossed both the sentiment and the two feathers with VersaMark nink and white embossing powder. I prefer Stampendous embossing powder, but I know there are lots out there!
I then began coloring using the lightest Spectrum Noir markers in my color scheme first. You can see in this shot I've already added a pale pink to the top of one feather and I'm adding the pale green tone to the second. I did do both feathers at the same time, going back and forth, as the feathers overlapped a bit and I wanted to be sure to include both color sets.
I used three tones for each feather. With the darkest, I not only did the fluffy feather parts, but I pulled that color up through the center of each feather to give some center definition and focus the color down the middle. I like the strength this gives the feathers.
After that, I simply trimmed the black cardstock to size and then completed my card! This is really a rather simple way to achieve a really beautiful look!
I hope you give this little technique a try!
Have a Happy!
