Background was made using the feather stamp with white embossing and then shading with distress inks (a.k.a. Emboss resist technique). I've been wanting feather stamps for so long and got them in the Stamp set I got for Christmas (Creative Stamping magazine, Issue 51)
I'm not a great fan of colouring so I just used red and yellow small ink pads and wiped it over white card stock. I then stamped the feathers over the coloured areas before cutting out.
