CASology #102 (Float), Keep It Simple #43 (Lots Of Turquoise), Waltzingmouse Fanatics #21 (Anything Goes), SSS Monday 30/6 (W Is For White)

Here’s the first of the two cards I mentioned earlier …

CASology 102, KIS 43, WMF 21, SSSM 30-6I took a panel of textured cardstock, sponged it with Distress Inks, splattered it with water drops (and droplets!) and let it dry.  It was then stamped and white embossed with Walzingmouse Funky Feathers … and I elongated the quills at the bottom with a white gel pen so they would cross.  The Avery Elle sentiment was also stamped and white embossed over the edges of the panel, I added a couple of sequins and popped the panel up on the card base.

I’m linking this card up to …

CASology – Float (feathers float in the air … and the panel is ‘floating’ on the base!)

Keep It Simple – Lots of Turquoise (errrmmm … yes??)

Waltzingmouse Fanatics – Anything Goes (do check out this challenge run by Tara and Deborah … a perfect reason to dig out your WM Stamps!)

SSS Monday – W Is For White (feathers, sentiment, base)

Hope you’ve had/are having a wonderful (long … for my friends in the USA) weekend!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    Love your white embossed feathers against this gorgeous background. Can you believe that I do not have any distress inks! I think I must make a point of buying some this week 🙂

    Will you stop????!!!!! You keep making cards that put mine to shame! No, really, don’t stop…, I’m just on ‘stun’. Why? Because this is totally brilliant. LOVE the turquoise. Absolutely love it. Perfectly CAS and so lovely. You keep going girl. Monsieur Mojo has lent you a helping hand. As Geri would say…winner, winner, chicken dinner! : )

    Wow…simply fabulous and I can honestly say that it looks just as amazing in person, since I happen to be the proud owner of this masterpiece! Thank you Miss Anita!

    Gorgeous card Anita, love the inky background, the colour is beautiful. I’m never game enough to sprinkle water onto my backgrounds, I’ll have to overcome my fear, this looks so effective, Cathy x

  7. Andrea Ockey Parr

    I love how this card turned out! The blending of the background is so lovely and I adore the colors you chose. The water splotches give it such great dimension and I applaud your skills with Distress Inks! The feathers and sentiment are stunning, too, and are perfect against that background. Great interpretation of our white theme! I’m so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

    I love, I love, I LOVE, Anita!!!! Stunning bg you created with the drops of water on the DIs!!! The feathers is just delish embossed in white and what a great job you did elongating the quills (I would have made a total mess trying to do something like that!!! LOL!!!) Your sentiment is perfect stamped over the edges and it goes so nicely with the feathers!! This is really beautiful!!!!

    Anita, that floating panel is absolutely gorgeous, and the white embossed feathers are the perfect floating touch! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

  11. Tracey McNeely

    Anita this is breathtaking! The embossed feathers over your inked background is so peaceful my friend! Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!

  12. Geri G

    Stunning Simplicity! The embossed feathers against your GORGEOUS splatted background takes my breath away! And yet again, not a stray fleck of embossing powder shrapnel anywhere! Nice touch ‘floating’ the panel!

    Beautiful card Anita!

    . Gonna say it again – Winner, Winner!

  13. Shona Chambers

    So, so beautiful! That colour is outstanding and love your technique for using it. I get a bit confused with watercolour. Can you only do it on watercolour cardstock or any type? I must have a play around with it. Its a bit scary but hey, I won’t know until I try! Those feathers are so fine and embossed perfectly. I tried embossing some very small script words today and they melted into one blob..whoops! I think anyone would love to receive this card, its stunning!!

  14. Mau xx

    This is Stunning Anita! I love the embossed feathers. Gorgeous colours too.
    Hugs Mau xx

    Hugs Mau xx

    Hi Anita, love this background just perfection and those feathers wow ! as always a stylish work of art, you really should frame this beauty.


  18. Kelly Griglione

    Seriously, I just LOVE this one!! The water droplets are great on your background. And I love that everything is in blue and white … so fresh and crisp. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

  19. BarbGhig

    Another really gorgeous card, Anita! I love how the feathers pop against your beautiful water colored background…simply beautiful!!!

    …..breath-taken away with the gorgeous background of this card paired with the stunning embossed feathers! Distress inks sponged, then water dropped – and drop-letted? Sounds easy, looks stunning… and were I to undertake such a ‘challenge’…I’d mess up for sure. Still, the allure of giving this a try persists…perhaps on a small scale! Truly exquisite…


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it!
