April 1,2017 House of Cards Challenge



This months challenge over at House of Cards is feathers or colors.  Well I recently got some Yupo paper which really isn't paper but plastic and it is so much fun to work with.  I used  alcohol inks to work with on my  Yupo paper and I was amazed at how the colors just transformed.  It is very forgiving and I just let my imagination take over.    I stamped (with Stazon trust me I tried other inks) the feathers and die cut them, from AMuse Studio I then saw I had a little bit left so I die cut the words and used them on my card as well.  
A couple of months ago I received some blog candy from a friend and I have been having fun with Tiles which I used for my background.  I found my stipple brushes and  went to town with my distress inks.  Then added a little water splatters.  Hope you enjoy.  
Join us over at House of Cards this month with your beautiful creations.

Great card! I love your colors, and you will have to teach me about the tiling and the yupo. I love the effects of both, and the feathers on the corners are perfect.

What a stunning card, like your geometric Yupo background and positioning of the feathers is fabulous! It was so much fun experimenting with the Yupo paper, thanks for sharing with me!
