Feathery hello

Hi there!

I was contemplating about a title for this post... 2 other options were " If you don't want to cover it frame it " or " Inspired by positive feedback ".

After I stamped the BG, I liked it so much that I didn't want to cover it with anything! The solution?
Add a frame. An added bonus was that the frame was cut for a previous attempt to make a card... but things did't work out as planned. Title option #1

After I shared THIS CARD earlier the week, I was so inspired by the wonderful feedback (especially on Instagram), seeing that it was a stamped ( and colored :0 ) card. { For those who don't know... I rather cut than stamp :) } Isn't it wonderful how positive feedback strengthens one's confidence? Title option #2
So thank you very much for that!

But in the end I chose the shortest and no nonsense title explaining what the card is actually about!

Here's the much discussed card :

Feathery hello card

I used one of the feathers from the Hero arts set called ... yes you guessed... Feathers !
The sentiments and dots are from a Casual Friday set called Wallflower.
The pinpoint frame and rectangle dies are by Memory box.
Stamped with inks by Stamperia.

I was inspired by the following challenges:

Awesome card, Hannelie! The feathers are gorgeous, but I'm really impressed with how you stamped the dots! They look nice and random, but not even, and at the same time balanced. How do you do it?!

TK said...

Wow! No wonder you didn't wanna cover it up!! If I made a background that gorgeous, I think I'd frame it...

Petra Swart said...

O, jou vere lyk eenvoudig wonderlik, vrou en ek's mal oor die dotjies so tussenin!!!!! Daai vere kan definitief nie toegemaak word nie en hulle lyk wonderlik in die raam!!! Die kleure is so lieflik en die sentiment wat jy so eenvoudig gehou het, is perfek!!! Dit lyk pragtig!!!
