AAA Card Challenge - All About Orange


The AAA Cards challenge was a fun one this week - creating with orange. 
 I wanted a rather simple card for this challenge.  I started out by squishing two colors of Distress Stamp pad ink to a craft mat and then quickly drug my cardstock through it.  I love that this look is totally unpredictable.  I ended up with a swoosh this was and another one that way. 
I added some inks to another piece of paper, this time watercolor paper and when that was dry, I cut out two feathers from it.  The feather die is from Poppy Stamps.  To add a little more interest, I gave the tips of one of the feathers a dip of gold embossing powder.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. 
Be sure to play along with use this week at AAA Cards.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
