up today is a card i created with the fine feathers die set from taylored expressions. i paired the negative die cut feathers with a sentiment from the simply stamped - daises set. or, for other similar sentiments you could use a sentiment from the free spirit stamp set.
to create these colorful feathers i first die cut the feathers from a white cardstock panel a bit smaller than the card base. it will take two passes through a die cut machine as i overlapped the feathers a bit. then i inked up the lower left quadrant of the card base with two distress inks - being sure to blend them together well where they overlapped. with the panel placed onto the card front the blended ink colors show through the negative portion of the die cut feathers.
