A Feathery View
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  Using dies from the current 2023 February release, I created this thank you card.  To be honest I set out to do something else, but this resulted instead. 😂

Once again, I saw several watercoloring/painting reels on Instagram (IG) and wanted to give it a try.  Started by adding blobs of gouache paints on the smooth side of Memory Box’s watercolor paper in the order of the desired colors.


Using flat watercolor brushes and as little water as possible, created a background wash.


Took a small round brush and black gouache paint and painted in the land mass.  Lightly splattered with diluted white gouache paint for the stars.  Also used white gouache paint to paint the moo and reflection in the water.


The artists in the IG reels painted in their own silhouettes.  I didn’t want to take the chance of ruining my progress, so I die cut my silhouettes from black cardstock using the Backyard Floral Stems die.


The Plumed Gypsy Feather background die was then used to die cut the feather aperture from an A2 size Bristol panel.  The detailed top layer was also die cut from Bristol and mounted onto the back cutout layer.  Die cut the Tilted Thanks sentiment 3x to stack for dimension, then assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.  


That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a lovely day.





Wow wow wow!!! Amazing!

This is stunning, Trina. I love the color wash and stamped image over it. I must try this, thank you for sharing.

I don't know what your first idea was, but this one turned out great! Beautifully done, Trina!

Amazing scene you can see from the feather-shaped window, Trina! Love this card!

Such an incredible scene, Trina - perfect through the feather window, so creative!!
