More feathers

As promised, here are some more cards made with my new stamp set from Artemio.

It's a really versatile set, lots of uses and the images come in several sizes, the longest feather measures 14 cm and it's this image that I used on this topfolding card. The same feather stamped twice in Warm red and Aquamarine Color box Chalk inks. The little sun is from a company called Olor - where can I have picked that one up I wonder? - and was embossed in gold. Three little enamel dots to complete the card.







The next card - that I have decided to enter into the Case Study Challenge blog this week, Challeng #154 http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.fr/ - uses the smallest feather in the set, I really like this image, can be used as a leaf also. I stamped a repetetive pattern in Lime pastel, Aquamarine and Tangerine inks.


Then to soften the colors I added some vellum onto which I stamped a birthday greeting from Hero Arts. The difficulty with vellum is of course, how do you attach in an elegant way? Here I used a thin strip of double sided sticky tape to stick the vellum to my card front, then I hid the tape with a length of black and white washi tape - no can see ugly tape!  Happy about that! Proof below:





The third card is again using a feather from the set combined with part of a Paula Best sun stamp and a little bit of bling.













That's all for today, hope you have enjoyed, thanks for visiting!










There seem to be a problem with the template for my blog,  the color has dissappeared which is a bit annoying, I'll have to try and fiddle with it, please bare with me while I try and get things right...
