A Note to a Falling Feather

Layer it, color it, stamp it!  An illustrative piece affirmation to give or put up to look at.

Feather is stamped using DTR - Direct To Rubber technique.  The feather image is beautiful and mostly solid and so this works well.  Turn, stamp image face up and use dye based inks starting with a pink hue, then blue/periwinkle, then green.  I did press a tiny bit of the blue into the pink for contrast and green into blue on the edges as well.

Huff on stamp (moisture) and stamp image.  You will see (as above) the colors meld together.

Simple swirls drawn with Micron pens, other images colored with Gelly Roll Pens.

"A-R-T" letters drawn on circles with Gelly Roll pens.

The washi chevron image is cut into a flag and the bright color makes the feather pop!
