It's Your Day!

This card is going to a European friend who likes things on the ornate side, so I was happy to comply . . .

I was very pleased with the way the feathers came out – however, the card is so busy that they are hard to see, even though I lightened them up a bit.  Perhaps feathers should be a stand-alone feature on my next card. 

The background on this one was done with very small blobs of gesso squeezed onto an acrylic block.  After setting the block down on the cardstock, I lifted it straight up which produced some lovely feathery edges along with some texture.  More gesso in my future for sure!
