A Wonderful Time with a Feather

I have a list of 2-3 challenges a day that I like to check out and then create cards for if I'm inspired and have the time - and it's funny how often the challenges are similar - which has to be pure coincidence - but what are the odds???!!  Such is the case this week with the two challenges I made this card for:
I sponged the green and blue onto the bottom of the panel with Ranger Distress Inks (so nice and juicy!) - masking each section as I sponged.  Then I stamped the Waltzingmouse sentiment from Join US and the feather from Marks Finest Papers set -Bold and Free (retired) in black.  I tried to place the feather as if it was a feather pen - and the writer had just finished writing this note to the host!

And here are the two challenges:

Feathers are so trendy right now!

Stamps:  sentiment from Join Us - Waltzingmouse, feather from Bold and Free - Marks Finest Papers.
Paper:  white - PTI, Pacific Point - SU
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Mowed Lawn and Salty Ocean
Accessories - Eclipse Tape, blending tool - Ranger.

Love your feather card Julia, I love the feather image, and the blocks of colour, so 'on-trend' as they say!

My first thought was this is a feather pen like in the really old days...great job on this one Julia, love the sentiment with the feather. I have seen a lot of feather challenges around lately. Feathers must be the new chevron or hexagons!
