STAMPlorations February CAS card Challenge (Reminder)

Hello friends!
I'm swinging by to remind you about the
STAMPlorations February CAS Card Challenge
It's still going on and you have until February 28th to play along!

Here's the theme for this month:
Show us your CAS creations with or without the twist!  Please see the blog challenge post for complete details on entering.  I've been really enjoying the entries so far!

Here's some more inspiration I've made for this challenge to share:
I have to say that I've really enjoyed playing with this hot pink color on my creations.  It's not a color I really thought about adding or using very often, but I have really liked the results that I've gotten from it!  You can use it for many occasions.

For the card I've made here, I took the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle dies to cut out an A2 sized white panel and then I used a smaller one of the die to cut out another piece with the center cut out for an opening to place over the card front.  I've used the ink foam blending tool with the Picked Raspberry distress ink over the opening and covered it completely.  I removed the mask and then sprayed it with water and dabbed the access.  I then took the Vignette: Trendy Feathers stamp set and inked up a feather with black ink and stamped it as well as the sentiment below.  I then inked the same feather image with gray ink to the right of black one.  And lastly I inked up the same feather image with VersaMark and then embossed it with gold EP.

I then took my black KG Tambi watercolor and loaded it with water on a brush and flicked some black droplets all over the card base.  I took some gold thread to make a bow and glued it over the gold feather and lastly I glued some gold sequins in random spots.  I've attached this card front to a white A2 sized top folding card base.

Here's a closer look at some of the details:
Here you can better see the gold embossing as well at the different colors on the feathers.  I have also taken a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and went over the black feather.

Since I removed the mask and then sprayed the water over the pink, the ink ran a bit outside the lines, but I think it helps add to the character of the design.

I hope you've enjoyed my creation today and that you will be inspired to join with us this month for the STAMPlorations CAS card challenge as well!

Thanks so much for dropping by!
