Our Birthdays are Feathers...

Feathers are hot right now, so I thought I'd make a couple birthday cards using the newest Sheena Douglass' stamp set, Falling Feathers.   This stamp set has eight different sized feathers, as well as the lovely sentiment, "Our Birthdays are Feathers in the Broad Wing of Time".

For both the cards, I used pigment ink when stamping the images.  I first applied the lightest shade (grey) to the entire stamp.  Then I added a turquoise shade the upper third of the feather.  Finally, I added a darker shade of green to the very top of my feather.

For the second card I made, I did the same thing with the feathers, but also added a bit of Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue for a bit of sparkle.  I also stamped the saying with both the turquoise and green colors for a two-toned look.

I am entering my birthday cards in the following challenges:

Papercraft Star - Use a Stamp
Simon Says Stamp - Fly
Ruby's Rainbow - Happy Birthday
Stamp with Fun - Birthday
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope the rest of your week is wonderful :)

Gorgeous cards. Love those feathers.
On the first card I think the ribbon is a real eyecatcher, is beautifull on the second I just love the glimmer.
