Princess Feathers

I am a doing a guest spot in the Paper A La Mode Challenge at the Outlawz and this week's challenge is "It's A Banner Day" - use banners on your project.

The sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs and I used the Princess_Feathers_Portrait image (this link will take you to all the portraits and Princess Feathers is almost at the bottom).  I spent a long time looking through the images at Sassy Studio and they are gorgeous.  I needed a Sympathy card so I added a few tears and a computer generated sentiment.

Here's my card:

I colored her up with SU! Alcohol Markers, Chalks, and a White Gel Pen - faces and hair are not one of my strengths but look at that super cool Brushos bg behind her!  I sponged some SU! from the Four Feathers set and cut them down so they wouldn't take over my card.  Cut and roughed them up and added some white dots and they made a cool banner.  My sentiment is computer generated and made as a banner as well.  Other than my white card base and the black matting, all the papers were from my scrap pile.

I also used the SCS Inspiration Challenge to inspire my colors and bg and THIS  is the picture that inspired me.

Hope you will join us in the challenge.  If you are not an Outlawz member, you can join super quickly and play.

  6. This is just lovely. I like the beautifully colored image, but the texture of the papers and combination of the blue and tan patterns is a wonderful color combo. Very striking. Also love the way you've presented the focal image as a hanger (banner) with the dangling feathers. Really a gorgeous card. Well done. TFS & Happy Sunday.
