Altenew | Simple and Elegant Card with Golden Feather

​Hi friends,

Do you like feathers? I don’t like them. I LOVE them, ADORE them. Feathers one of those designs I will never have enough of. You don’t really see me using them very often. But it’s just because I try very hard to not make cards featuring things I love too often. Otherwise all you see from me would be blue or gray cards with feathers or some other of my favorite designs.

But today is the day when I do use all of mentioned in my card. And the main role is played by very beautiful Golden Feather Stamp Set.

I started off by white embossing a couple of feathers onto a Vellum Translucent Paper using Pure White Embossing Powder. Next I die-cut them using the matching dies. After that I colored the back side of the vellum feathers using blue markers from the Artist Markers Set A.

Coloring on vellum with alcohol markers is not the same as on a regular paper, since vellum is much less porous. So instead of blending in marker ink rather stays and dries on top. And when you color with one color over another it replaces the previous one. The result is nothing similar to what you usually get on a regular paper and can sometimes look even ugly. But I like using this method to color embossed on vellum die-cuts. From the front side of a vellum all those imperfections are much less visible, also embossing covers the most part of a die-cut. And it looks much lighter than if it was embossed on a regular blue cardstock.  I personally like having it lighter when create feathers.

Next I cut a panel out of a Pale Gray Cardstock and added several splatters of black spray onto it.

I stamped a sentiment onto a Solar White Cardstock stripe using Jet Black Ink and the Thinking Of You Stamp Set.

After that I put down some adhesive using a Glue Tape in the top part of the panel and placed some tangled silver thread on top.

Next I adhered the feathers on top of the thread foam mounting the sentiment above them. I was using “clear foam” for this task, I like using clear dimentional adhesive in cases when I don’t want foam mounting to be visible.

Lastly I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base and added several Silver Foil Crystals to accentuate the card.
