Double D Challenge - Just Wing It!

It is that time again!  Another fabulous mood board for your inspiration at Double D Challenge.  It is team Darlene presenting this one.  Take a look at what they have done to get you started, and then don't forget to see what team Diane has crafted as well.
                                                            
Here is the Prize!
 
OK and here is the second card that I made for this challenge.  Not showing the first one as I missed the boat with the inspiration board.  Happens sometimes, I will just keep it for another time. Tee hee!

 I pulled out the Paper Trey Ink stamp and matching dye set called Feather Finery and used that for this card.  With the help of  Crumb Cake and Spiced Marmalade inks I stamped it.  Do you see a technique here, that has been out there on the Internet for us crafty people?  No, well let me tell you.
I did the wreath technique that Gina K has shown us recently.  Look at the background square panel.  I just used small stamps from this set along, with the dots for the smaller feather.  Colored the hearts with the Spiced Marmalade ink and here it is for you.  A few drops of gold Nuvo drops on the feathers and it is done.  I layered a lot of panels on the base and then the square one is popped up with foam tape.
  Seriously, you should check out what the other team has done with this mood board.  Lots of fun and a prize too.

  1. Stunning card Barbara, oh how I LOVE the gold Nuvo on those beautiful feathers....and now I need to try this technique (in my spare time...right). Funny how a few of us doubted ourselves this time and I am sure your first card is a stunner as well...(I almost pulled my card and started over..but it does have 'wings') lol!

  6. Ha! That happened to me last time in the gray challenge and I still haven't posted the card. I'm thinking now it probably would have been okay, sigh. This is absolutely fantastic, Barbara! I love how you added the bird with the feathers, and look at those splatters and Nuvo drops! They're all that's needed to make those feathers look amazing. So simple and I probably never would have thought of it. I've got that wreath builder set bookmarked. It will probably be old news by the time I get it, but such a useful thing. Love how you made your background with the hearts and splatters!

  9. The fact that you and I both used feathers just makes me smile. I love your design, I haven't used that PTI set in a long time, but you have inspired me to pull it out again. Adding the hearts is a great touch, LOVE the colors you have used. That is one awesome card, my dear!
