Watered Feathers

I am back again with another watercolor card! This was a card I made for a swap this fall and I got to indulge my love of blues here :)

My first step was to stamp the feather image repeatedly with Versamark ink on a panel of watercolor paper, then heat embossed with White embossing powder. Then I wet the watercolor paper with plain water, then added the stripes of different colors. After the colors died, I spritzed again with some Pearlized water (Perfect Pearls in Pearl color mixed in a water mister).
I think you got the rest :)

 I stamped a feather in each color of ink on the inside edge and drew a border with my Signo white gel pen, of course!

I feel like doing a little more watercoloring, how about you? :)

This card is absolutely stunning! I love how you used the feather image to make a wave pattern. A unique and beautiful way to use this set! Thanks for the inspiration!!
