Four Feathers and Eye-Catching Ikat

Four Feathers and Ikat

I just love the addition of the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating Feathers Framelits to the 2014 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I have lots of Native American art in my home, and so I looked at what I could pair this great stamp set with to achieve that effect.  Lo and behold – I found a set in my collection that I haven’t used a lot called Eye-Catching Ikat.  Since this stamp set is in photopolymer, I was able to line up my stamping to create my own designer paper by stamping in Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise and Cajun Craze.

    • I stamped two of the feathers on Very Vanilla cardstock.  For the third feather, I stamped on Tempting Turquoise cardstock with VersaMark and sprinkled on Silver Embossing Powder, then heat set with the Heat Tool.
    • Wasn’t sure where to add my sentiment, so I decided to cut out an extra feather and stamp a simple “hello” from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set on it.
    • I added additional “sterling silver” accents using a Silver Button and a strip of Silver Foil run through the Big Shot using the zig-zag framelit in the Finishing Touches Edgelits.

I tried adding some Candy Dots with Brad Bases, but I think it’s too much – thought I’d show you anyway.  What do you think?  Leave me a comment!
