Feathery Birthday for CAS Mix Up

Hello friends.  I'm so glad you could stop by.

It's time for another challenge at CAS Mix Up.
Nancy is hosting us this month and she chose...

Here's my card.
Using Stencil Monprint, Stamping, Heat Embossing, Die Cut, Alcohol Ink and Gelato.

My stencil monoprint was done by usng metallic Gelato on a stencil and rubbing
it through the openings with my finger.

You'll see that print later.

Then I spritzed the stencil with water and pressed onto a piece of
mixed media paper.

It has a lovely shimmer when the light hits it.

The feather die was in my NBUS box and I found a piece of 
alcohol inked Yupo in my background box.

There is a copper feather underneath the alcohol feather.
You can't see it well but it added some stability.

I've used a piece of copper foil as a mat and it all seemed
to fit best on a brown card base.

It will make a great birthday card for our oldest grandson.

Our Design Team and Guest Designer, Cathy (Cathy's Card Spot), have some
wonderful inspiration for you at the challenge site.

I hope you'll check them out and do a stencil monoprint and join us.
Video tutorials links are at the challenge site if you need more inspiration.

Can I call it beautiful when it's a masculine card?? The background is perfect for the detailed feather...loving all the different colors and especially the copper! FABULOUS card Bonnie!! :0)

Gorgeous alcohol ink die cut feather, Bonnie. I love how you used a softly colored negative stencil monoprint image for the background. I agree, your copper and brown framing (white space) blends so well with your main image and does not distract for your stunning feather. Perfect birthday card design for your grandson. TFS my friend. Hugs..

That feather is so beautiful with the alcohol inks.. I wondered how you had done it. Great masculine card, Bonnie.

The metallic gelatos really yielded a superlative look to this awesome feather. This is just stunning, and it looks so beautiful atop the paler shade of your yupo background. Well done!!! TFS
