Feathers with trimmings

sounds like a Thanksgiving posting ;-)

This card is done using Four Feathers stamp set (Bermuda Bay ink) and cutting them out with the  matching framelits die. There is a Bermuda Bay button and linen thread bow on top of the feathers.

The background has a border stamp from Mosaic Madness stamp set (Crumb Cake ink)

The inspiration came from Toneale Williams. Her feathers were more elaborate and she had used heat embossing on them, but I needed to cut some corners with this. She also used different background border stamp

The ribbons are burlap and Venetian Crochet Trim. The base is Crumb Cake layered with Whisper White, which was spritzed with Bermuda Bay ink. 

TIP: I recommend using rubbing alcohol (available at drug stores near bandages and disinfecting solutions) rather than water. Alcohol dries faster than water on the paper, so you get less damage on your paper. I recommend also starting adding the ink in your liquid carefully and testing the colour step by step. You can always sprits multiple times and get more colour. My Bermuda Bay spritzer is very light.
