Thanks

Happy Monday, my friends! I thought that I'd squeeze in a card for the Color Media Challenge in the Moxie Fab World just before the deadline. =)


I once again played with gold Gelato, Stencil and light modeling paste for the background. Hope you are not getting tired of this technique from me! =)


For the feathers I tried the Eroded Metal technique from Creative Chemistry 102 Class taught by the one and only Tim Holtz. It's a technique that involves Distress Paints. I used Meowed Lawn, Broken China and Tarnished Brass with a little inking with Gathered Twigs and Vintage Photo. I have no idea if I am doing it exactly right, but the result is pretty cool anyway.


The patterned paper is from Up & Away 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye and the sentiment is from Thanks set by Simon Says Stamp.

That's all for now. Have a fantastic day, my friends! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
