Pantone Colors on Rockwell Designs: Nectarine

The latest color that is highlighted on Rockwell Designs as a Pantone Spring Fashion 2013 color is nectarine!  I thought it bore a remarkable resemblance to the new Stampin' Up Color Crisp Cantaloupe. Hmmm...nectarines and cantaloupe!!

But instead of going fruity, I decided to use feathers.  There are so many lovely feather sets out there and it's such a gorgeous look.  I went with the Clearly Besotted set Fancy Feathers. (FYI: in the U.S. Clearly Besotted is available at Simon Says Stamp.)  I hesitated to use this set mostly because I was inspired to get it based on two cards from one of my favorite designers: here and here.  Kara's cards are truly stunning and I knew nothing that I made would quite measure up.  It doesn't...but I'm still happy with it...it's hard to go wrong with these graceful feathers!!

Birthdays are Feathers 1

(FYI: I took the wrapper off of the ink for this card and discovered
that the cantaloupe paper is more nectarine-ish than the ink is!
I hate it when that happens!)

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Fancy Feathers
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Smoky Slate
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Smoky Slate and Crisp Cantaloupe
  • Accessories: Clearly Besotted Fancy Feather dies, Avery Elle Citrus Blend sequins, Divine Twine Oyster Twine

I agree, those feathers are "graceful" and so is your card! Peaceful and very pretty.

I'm so happy you played along again Kim!!! :)
