This is for the Ways to Use It challenge - Got Wind?
The background was made by spraying ink directly onto the card then blowing it around the card using a drinking straw. I got a bit carried away with the amount of ink at one stage so i had to blot it with a baby wipe.
The feathers are made by die cutting with kids craft foam. I wiped the stained baby wipe over the foam to add a bit of colour. I feel quite dizzy from blowing all this ink around LOL.
Thank you for looking.

Your background piece is breathtaking....and it sounds like it left you breathless making it! Totally awesome and worth every puff you put into it. The depth and layering of the colors make this a work of art and those feathers with the paint smeared on them are the perfect way to finish the piece. Incredible card and its going straight to my fav's! TFS!

As usual, another stunning card. The bkg looks like metal that has been aged by the elements. The feathers are the perfect focal point. Along with your spider card I am getting the urge to go hiking...they both remind me of the beauty of nature. What a beautiful creation.
