Stencil Cut Striped Feather-Nacho Average Color Challenge #142

We have a bright color challenge this week over at the Nacho Average site: Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe!

Here's my contribution:

Four Feathers 014

These three colors are retiring on June 2nd.  I'm so sad.  The 2013-2105 In Colors quickly became my favorites.  Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Baked Brown Sugar.  I used them a lot, and I will miss them!

So to go along with the retiring colors, I used mostly retiring items to create this card: Says it All stamp set, Feathers Framelits, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine and 2013-2015 In Color Sequins. 

To create the feather stencil, I cut the feather out of Whisper White card stock using my Big Shot and Feathers Framelits.  I adhered 1/4" wide strips of the challenge colors on a smaller piece of card stock and then set the feather stencil on top.  I added speckles from Gorgeous Grunge (not retiring!) using Coastal Cabana ink.  I added the In Color Sequins using Mini Glue Dots.  Bright, cheery and easy to do!

Be sure to check out each of the Design Team's entries to the challenge and leave a comment if you can.  It means a lot to all of us!  We'd also love for you to play along with the weekly challenges.  A Linky Tool has been added so you can upload your creation to the Nacho Design Team site.
