i made this card for the challenge over at the etsy inspired challenge blog! they pick an etsy shop and the challenge is to make a project using those goods as inspriation. this week, the featured seller is 'the caged fairy' - and i have to say, i wanted to buy almost everything from this shop!! ha ha! i wished i could have created something that really reflected how much i loved all of the jewelry as much as i did, because i really loved it all!
anyway, on to my card! i used a ring as my inspiration. i mentioned in an earlier post that i am loving the color combination of orange-ies and teals. it makes me happy! so when i saw this ring, i not only wanted to own it, i knew it would be the perfect inspiration!
i decided to experiement with feathers...which is a lot harder (and fluffier - read: messier) than i thought! ha ha! first i used some glimmer mist to sparkle up the base of the card. then i used a hot glue gun to glue down the feathers. then i layered over some fat light teal ribbon. on top of that, i added some more black ribbon.
i added the red hearts because...well i add little hearts to almost everything i do! (look back at some of my older cards - it's like an eye spy of little hearts!) and i thought the dark red color was perfect to compliment and contrast with the card.
this challenge was so much fun! thanks for taking a gander!
