Feathery Birthday

Hi friends!  It's Friday again and time for a new Viva la Verve sketch.  This week's hostess is Maureen and she has a super fun sketch that's easy to dress up or down for any occasion.

I needed a masculine birthday card, so I pulled out some earthy colors... old olive, island indigo and kraft.  I started by stamping the large feather from Moments Remembered on white cardstock a few times and then coloring with copic markers and sponging with walnut stain distress ink.  Added some rounded corners to this panel, its mat and the kraft resist paper below it.  The sentiment stamps are from Wonderful Marvelous and I stamped them on the same stamped paper that the feather panel had been cut from, then hand trimmed the pennant and sponged with distress ink.  The old olive layer is also stamped randomly with the feather stamp in early espresso and then sponged with walnut stain.  I finished off with a base from the kraft resist paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

And before I go, just a little reminder that everything is on sale at Verve!  20% off stamps, dies, ribbon and sequins released prior to July.  And 10% off our July release!
