ID: MC Mar/14 - Feathers Bonjour - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: March 2, 2014

I love these feathers which were a free eCut file from the Silhouette online store. As well as, while I was checking the criteria for some challenges, I just kept adding more and more details... Love the way it turned out

I'm also using a  sentiment stamp on the inside from the "Happy Family Days" set from Quietfire Design


Side folded my white card and sponged Distress "Shabby Shutters" around the edges.

I stamped the image (Stampin Up "Hello Doily") using milk on a piece of paper towelling onto hot press watercolor paper. Dried it and then ironed it on the hottest setting (no steam) between some scrap paper until the milk started to turn brownish (caramelized...). trimmed it down and hit the side edges with a Versafine "Toffee" stamp pad and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder.

Adhered a wide piece of green gauze ribbon on the left side and added a piece of white lace edging. Punched a couple small holes for my button brads. Adhered the purple toned twine bow, then adhered this to my card front.

I eCut the feathers from white cardstock, sponged with Distress (Pumice Stone", "Picked Raspberry", a bit of "Tumbled Glass", & "Shabby Shutters"). Used a Wink of Stella clear iridescent brush pen to add some glitz to the feathers. The core piece I sponged with some of the raspberry, then embossed with one of my mixes of UTEE, white & gold embossing powders, then adhered it to the feather.

Adhered the feathers to the card front and added the heart button (I removed the shank).

eCut the word "Bonjour" from white cardstock using "Bazooka" font, then cut a shadow of the word. The shadow I applied glue to the edges and sprinkled with Stickles glitter "Eucalyptus". The main word I sponged with a mix of the Raspberry and "Seedless Preserves" to get an orchid type color, dried and applied Glossy Accents all over. When dry adhered the two elements together and onto the card.

As a final touch added the flourish of pearls.

On the inside sponged the Crafters Workshop stencil by Rhonda Palazzari "Mini Fancy Feathers" with  the green, raspberry and some blue and embossed with White Pearl Lustre embossing powder. Stencilled another feather on a separate piece of white cardstock using the raspberry and the blue and clear embossed, then fussy cut around it. Punched a couple buttons (Martha Stewart), sponged with the above colors, clear embossed and adhered the green on directly to the card. The pink one and the fussy cut feather I adhered with 3D foam tape.

Die cut a Spellbinders "Beaded Ovals" to use as a stencil. Sponged the little openings with the raspberry, and the edges with the blue, then stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx.
