Enjoy This Special Day

This was a fun card to make after viewing Dawn McVey's video on making Gradient Watercolor Die Cuts. Using three Distress Inks, I watercolored a piece of watercolor paper. Next die cut a medium size feather and inlaid it on a woodgrain paper bookmark which was adhered to a chartreuse card with foam mounting tape. The sentiment was stamped directly on the feather and a vellum banner die cut. The bookmark was completed with a baker's twine bow. All products except for the twine and woodgrain paper are from Papertrey Ink.
