Get Inspired - Rainbow Feathers

Hi everyone!  Its Saturday which means its time for some cardmaking inspiration!

This week its my turn to share something I've found inspirational. Of course I turned to Pinterest, and I found this beautiful picture from Caseycreative on Etsy.

Colorful Feather Watercolor Drawing/Painting

Here is what I came up with:

I decided to use Mark's Finest Papers  set called "Be a Showoff" and play with some watercolouring. After stamping and embossing my image I used my water brush and some markers to add colour in rainbow order.  Once dry I added some glitter pen, rhinestones, and doodled lines.  I was going to keep things white on white, but I decided in the end that a black frame balanced things out nicely.

Please don't forget to go to the Get Inspired page at MFP Speedy TV next week to see what MariLynn does with this image.  There are so many different things she could do! Feel free to share your own creations with us by linking them below.  :)
