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!!
(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!)
