Link in the chain - June

It's reveal day at the Card Chain Challenge. My card this month went to Jane and from the options on offer I chose the colours (lemon, lime, sky blue) and the theme of feathers.

I just coloured the die cut feathers with inks for a sort of ombre effect and smooshed slightly watered down blue ink onto the card base using a piece of acetate. It's pearlescent ink so it has a pretty sheen in real life. I used the same ink* to stamp the script for a bit of background interest.

Essential Messages and 19th Century Script (both Hero Arts)

Bristol board

Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Sky, Graphite Black)
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide by Ranger (Twisted Citron)
Jenni Bowlin ink by Ranger (Lemon Drop)

Feather Duo die/folder by Tim Holtz/Sizzix
Corner Chomper
Pinflair glue gel

*That ink pad is over 13 years old - never been reinked and still performing just fine! I happen to know how long I've had it because I bought a pink and a blue ready to stamp a setniment on a card when a friend was expecting her first baby and that baby (who got a Pearlescent Orchid sentiment, as it happens) is now a teenager!

Thanks for stopping by!

I find it just fascinating how everyone interprets the prompts in ways that I would never have thought of. Love that background and the detail on the feathery leaves xx
