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.
