Feathers for Freshly Made Sketches #124 with Stampin' Royalty Colors #215

I've been seeing a lot of cards with feathers lately and find myself drawn to them.  I love the three panel sketch by Freshly Made Sketches this week and especially liked how Design Team member Rita Wright used feathers in the sketch.  The twist on my feathers card is that they are created with negative space.  Card size is 6.5" x 5". The colors I chose are from this week's Stampin' Royalty color challenge which is a new challenge for me. (I don't know why I haven't played along with this challenge sooner--after all  my blogging persona is NJ Stamping Queen!)

Here is a close-up to show the textured lines of the feathers created with a small stylus:

Close To My Heart products used:
     Artiste Cricut cartridge (page 78 accent 3 shift cut at 3")
     Pacifica CS
     Honey CS
     Ruby CS
     Just a Number stamp 
     Ruby Ink

Here is the Freshly Made Sketch I followed:

Here is the Stampin' Royalty Color Palette--since I don't have SU inks I substituted the closest Close To My Heart colors.

I'm also entering this card into Seize the Birthday Challenge.

If you like color challenges like I do please consider joining us at Color My Heart Color Dare.  We have weekly blog badges that are awarded along with a monthly prize to be given out.
