FM153 Watercolored Feathers

Sara brings us a new challenge on the Friday Mashup.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the colors "Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi & Perfect Plum".
  2. Create a project using "an Aqua Painter or a Blender Pen to create a Watercolor Effect".
  3. Or mash it up and create a project with the "Colors above & a Watercolor Effect".
Also playing along with Mix-Ability Challenge #43, the goal was to use two or more mediums for feathers.

For this card, I pushed the limits for the definition of watercoloring.  :)  I started playing with different card stock - watercolor, Shimmery White, and vellum.  I sponged color onto the Fine Feathers stamp and stamped onto wet watercolor paper.  I cut the Shimmery White and vellum feathers with the e-cutter.  I applied the reinker spreader technique to the Shimmery White feather.  This card also uses Mojo Monday Sketch #335.  Kinda funky but fun.

I'm thinking about my friend today, who passed away recently.  She could be a tie-dyed flower child, and I remember her with this card.

Stamps: Fine Feathers, Four You; Paper: Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla, Watercolor Paper, Shimmery White, Vellum, Epic Day DSP; Ink: Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White craft; Accessories: Gold Sequin Trim, Stampin' Spritzer, Aquapainter, Sponges, On Film framelits, Big Shot, e-cutter, Sewing machine, Thread; MDS Elements: Feather Woodcuts.

I really like how you thought out of the box for watercoloring. Thank you for taking the time to tell us how you created your card. Your instructions were perfect and once I get my hands on shimmery white paper I will have to give this technique a try.
