Two fun "techy" tricks I learned recently are shown in this blog post, woo hoo! First, I learned how to create a nice looking watermark for my photos in PicMonkey. Second, I learned how to embed live product links in an image list at the bottom of this post! If you are new to this, as I am, check out the TAMS widget in the sidebar, at the bottom of my blog page. That's how I uploaded the product links. Pretty cool!
I was inspired to make this card after seeing Deb Johnson's beautiful sponged feather here. To make my version, I cut all the cardstock panels, and corner punched the Vanilla and Espresso ones. I stamped the sentiment in gold and heat embossed it with gold EP, then wrapped the panel with washi tape. I die cut one unstamped feather and used a 3/4" circle to mask off the sun, then sponged in the colors Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Soft Suede. I removed the sun mask and lightly sponged some Crushed Curry into the circle. I stamped the grasses from Wetlands at the bottom, and drew in some birds with a Stampin' Write marker. That feather is adhered directly to the card with snail adhesive. The other three feathers were stamped and die cut in the following colors: Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, and Gold Encore (heat embossed with gold EP). I used snail to adhere them together in a cluster, then wrapped the "stems" with a linen thread bow and popped them up on the card with dimensionals. I really love how it turned out!
