Muse #131, MFT Colour Challenge #28, CAS(E) This Sketch #139, SSS Wednesday 2/9

Hello!  Hope you’re having a fabulous weekend … especially those of you in the US where it’s a looooong one!  Popping in to share one of the cards I made today …

Muse 131, MFT Colour 28, CTS 139, SSSW 2-9I white heat embossed a feather (from Waltzingmouse Stamps) three times onto a white card panel, added copious amounts of water to make a pool, dropped four different colours into it … and allowed them to wander and mingle (in a sociable kind of way!).  The SSS sentiment was heat embossed in silver on the card base, the feather panel was popped up on foam tape, and I added a scattering of sequins and gems.

These challenges inspired my card …

Muse – Our inspiration comes from my lovely friend Carol M (Just Me:C) … she’s super talented, sweet and so much fun … and has given us a fabulous feathery card to play with this week, it’s below.  I used Carol’s feathers-in-a-line theme … with rather a soft, delicate touch!

MFT Colour Challenge – Spearmint, Blu Raspberry, Tropical Teal, Wild Wisteria.  I’m MFT goodie limited (very limited … for now!), so used the nearest colours in my stash (HA Mint Julep, DI Tumbled Glass, DI Peacock Feathers, Memento Lulu Lavender) … hope that’s ok.

CAS(E) This Sketch – From Leigh Penner … another brilliant sketch for us to interpret.

SSS Wednesday – Make It Colourful … my colours are subtle … but there are four of them!

There are another couple of cards to come … one might arrive later, the other will definitely be tomorrow.  For now, I’m off for a gentle meander round blogland to see what everyone’s been up to!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂

    The delicate feathers are so pretty on the soft watercolor background! And the sequins add just the right amount of sparkle! So delightful!

    One of the prettiest CAS I’ve seen to date. The soft pools of color are lovely with the white feathers. Also like the way you’ve let the sequins peek out from the top layer. TFS & Hugs. Have a great week.

    So soft and gorgeous and, well, featherly! This is a beautiful take on all the challenges, Anita, especially Carol’s awesome card!! I love feathers and have an arsenal (quiver?) of them and I’m so sad I don’t have time to play with Carol’s MUSE; I’m so glad you did!! I’m glad you are having a crafty weekend!! Miss you! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

    Sorry this is such a late comment but just wanted to tell you how beautiful and ethereal this card is. The feathers and soft colours go together perfectly and its such a wonderful inspiration piece from Carols card.

    Dropping in color really works for you, Anita, They got sociable enough to blend just right for a soft and lovely background for the white feathers.
