STAMPlorations CAS November Challenge - hello

This month's STAMPlorations CAS Challenge is:

Here's what I made:

I stamped the feathers in muted rainbow colors with the help of the wreath builder stencil. I die-cut a square in the center, stamped the sentiment, and popped it up with square black craft foam. I placed the square a little offset so that the black card base will show.

I liked the "modern rustic" feel of the card.

You have until November 30 to link up here.

  1. Such a contemporary and creative card. Love how you did the feathers in a circle and the muted rainbow colours look fabulous. The shadow effect of the black foam from the die cut square is perfect. Such a stunning interpretation of the challenge theme x.

  2. I think I saw the bird that grew these feathers fly by today … in my dreams! Hideko, the subtle colors are my favorites, and I love that striking black peeking out from your square die-cut from the circle formed - great design!

  3. What a unique and wonderful wreath, Hideko! I love how you've cut the square from the center and have the bit of black showing! A very creative and pleasing technique!

  4. I just love your creative feather wreath CAS design, Hideko. Wonderful muted Distress ink rainbow colors and popped up square die cut with the off set black foam. The Sahara Sand Card base continues the soft look of all your muted colors. TFS my friend and joining us at STAMPlorations CAS Challenge with the optional Rainbow colors. Hugs..Nancy
