SugarPea Designs / Boho Feathers

Hello!  I'm sharing a card using the Boho Feathers stamps from the last SugarPea Designs release.  These feathers have so much gorgeous detail! 

I thought the best way to show off all that detail would be to use the emboss resist technique.  This is one of my all time favorite techniques and perfect for a stamp like this!

I prepped a panel of bristol smooth watercolor paper with my anti-static powder tool.  I use this paper because it is sooo smooth and makes ink blending a breeze!  I alternated white heat embossing the feathers in white embossing powder.  Using Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Cracked Pistachio, and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, the colors were blended with the darkest colors at the top and bottom and the softer color meeting in the middle.  

To keep this super simple, I stamped a vellum strip with the sentiment in StazOn black ink and wrapped it around my trimmed panel.  This panel was added to a white top folding notecard so that there was a white border on the left and the right.  A few chunky rhinestones were added to channel a few of my fellow SPD DT friends! :)

Amy, your card is just the prettiest! I love the gradual shading on the background and your blending is perfection. The feathers look light and airy embossed with white. (I guess their supposed to, ha ha!) You've provided me with gorgeous inspiration today!
