I used half of a Fabriano Medioevalis note card to emboss the feathers on. This is excellent paper for watercoloring and is so textured and yummy to work with. These embossing folders rock! They are 6×6 and nice and large, perfect for covering a whole card or 6×6 page.
Let’s take a closer look at how gorgeous this impression is. The embossing is nice and crisp, without tearing the paper.
Now it’s time to run the feather die through. I used wood paper and wrapped a bit of twine around them for a nice, earthy, look. I know my die looks a bit beat up, however, that’s what makes these dies so awesome….they take a beating and still cut perfectly!
I used a wash of yellow and red for my background and love how the two colors work together. These watercolors are Kuretake Gansai Tambi and come in different sized sets. This one is a set of 36 and the colors are rich, vibrant, and lush!
The last step was to adhere my watercolored feathers and feather die cuts to my card.
What do you think? I really enjoyed creating this card and can see this being done in a variety of colors, each with the same, beautiful, effect.
