Birds of a Feather

All this rain has been keeping me indoors. I have been doing a lot of baking, but that just tempts me to eat more. Better to make cards.

I used a feather stencil to create the backgrounds for these 2 cards.

For the top sample, I sprayed shimmer inks through the stencil, which is why the design is not crisp, as ink always seems to seep beneath. I was after a soft watercolour abstract sort of look, so happy with the result.

For the card below, I first sprayed a white card with blue ink. Dried it, then placed the stencil over and sponged yellow ink through. I then ran a turquoise pen around the edge of each feather to better define them.
