The CAS challenge at Splitcoast today was to get "Trendy"....the theme was "Feathers" since feathers seem to be a big trend right now in stamping. This is the link to that challenge. I struggled a bit with this one because feathers are not my normal style, although I love birds etc. It was just a hard challenge for me....more than anything because I had my family around and my head wasn't into creating. I do have plenty of feather stamps, but nothing I did with them was working out. I could not color one to look realistic to save my soul. So, I decided to pick a more masculine color I had not played with much and make a monochromatic card. I chose very old feather stamp I had that was a collage of different feathers that I felt was interesting enough to stand on it own. I used SU Midnight Muse for the ink choice. This is what I made:
The sentiment is from Stampin Up's "OH HELLO". I thought it worked well with a more masculine type card. The banner also could come under the heading of "Trendy" since you see banners everywhere also. Anyway, hope you had a wonderful long weekend, and enjoy a super week ahead.
