Happy Thursday, friends!
Today I'm sharing my latest Pals Paper Arts design team project. It is based on our latest sketch challenge (PPA252) that just happens to have been design by yours truly:
When I created this sketch I distinctly recall debating between a vertical and horizontal orientation. And, while I used the horizontal orientation of the sketch, I'll be so curious to see if others (maybe even you) choose to flip it.
With this card, I used precisely 1 ink color (Blackberry Bliss), 2 card stock colors (Naturals White and Wisteria Wonder), plus a card base in Crumb Cake. However, as you look closely, you might think that more supplies were used.
The three shades for the feather come from "stamping off" by Blackberry Bliss ink.
The horizontal strip with the sentiment has some ink applied using my brayer.
The card front has several tones on it and to achieve the look I first applied some ink with my brayer and then I embossed the card stock.
Lots of interest and minimal supplies...makes for easy clean up and I like that!

If you'll recall, the title of the post is "Stars and Feathers for Pals Paper Arts" and I initially planned to share a patriotic project that is perfect for Memorial Day, July 4th, or Veterans Day (really, any day you want to celebrate the USA). Just as I was getting ready to apply my star embellishment, someone decided to apply an Old Olive star of their own:
I know just who I will be sending this card to and I am sure that they will love the addition of the green star! Certainly they will appreciate it MUCH more than I did when it was added one night earlier this week!
Be sure to visit Pals Paper Arts for all of the design team inspiration! After that, grab your supplies, get crafting, and share your project with us!
Wishing you a creative day!
