Bird's of a Feather...


Happy Wednesday!  Today I want to share with you a "masculine" card that I created using Beccy's Place new release "Feather Set."  When I saw this set I knew that I wanted to use my multi-color technique on it.  It was the perfect digital image for this technique and I love how it turned out.

Here's my creation...

Birds of a Feather
I started out with a 6x6 cream card base and layered on black cardstock and then some dp.  I cut a fishtail using black cardstock and made stitches on it using a white gel pen.  I matted my image on black cardstock and distressed the edges using ink.  I just realized that I didn't do any coloring (with markers on this card).  I "colored" my image using Microsoft Word.  Again, I love how it turned out and it would make a perfect card, in my humble opinion, for that special guy friend.

You can pick this set up and so many more when you visit Beccy's Place.  Don't forget to stop by the blog and check out what the design team put together using these images and sentiments.  Also, the April challenge is still up and running so join in the fun!

Thanks for looking and commenting.
