Feather Medallion

One of my gal pals, Judy Woodland, created a beautiful feather card a few months back.  In her description, she said the stamp was from Paper Tray Ink. I scurried over to their web cite and began following  their posts and looking at their products.  I finally purchased a few stamp sets and dies and they arrived in time for a current Make-it- Monday Challenge.  Of course, one of my purchases was the fabulous feather set.  Unfortunately, the die that accompanies the stamp set  was out of stock at the time, but it is back now so I will be ordering that soon. The challenge this week is to make a rainbow medallion using a stamp.  I used the smallest feather from the set.  The picture is a bit faded so the medallion is more vibrant than the image shows. I don't normally make square cards,but this particular stamped image seemed perfect for one.  The sentiment is from Melanie Muenchinger's  Buds and Vases available at Gina K Designs.  The scalloped circle and feather are Spellbinders and the embossing folder is Cuttlebug  Mosaic.   If you are interested in this challenge or a great tutorial on the technique,you can find the details here
