Verve June Diva Dare


Hey everyone!  Sliding in a card under the wire for this month's Verve Diva Dare.  The challenge this month was to create a card using coloring/paint and as an extra challenge to include kraft cardstock.

This was a fun, fun card to make, and I got to use some of my new goodies:  the peacock feather stencil from The Crafter's Workshop and some Liquitex Modeling Paste.

I first added the feathers using modeling paste.  Once that was dry I added color using Salty Ocean Distress Ink.  I used a wet brush to moisten the areas I wanted to color, then I used a waterbrush to pick up the color and apply it.  I wanted to keep the feathers pretty light, so when I was adding the color, I went right behind with a paper towel to pull color off of the modeling paste.

After that it was just adding the embossed sentiment and mounting the panel to the card base.  Really simple in terms of steps although necessarily lightning quick because you have to wait for stuff to dry.

I'm also going to link this up to Simon Says Stamp as it's Anything Goes week. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope your week is going well!
