Re-BE Inspired Challenge #49

Hey there!!

Just posting a card for TAWS Be Inspired Challenge #49! You still have a week to play along for your chance to win a TAWS stamp set. This is the inspiration picture:

I used the colors as my inspiration. I usually see inspiration literally, and when i first started this card and my idea started with having the bird upside down at the top of the card. I was going to have it hanging from rope or something. I did all the stamping and masking of the feathers all upside down. However after stamping i flipped it and liked it better the right way.... so i left it that way!

I colored everything with distress markers, orange with a little bit of purple, red and yellow. I matted the panel with blue cardstock, i thought it gave it a nice contrast with all the orange tones. To add some dimension, i added some glossy accents to the black centers of each feather (its really hard to see, but its there!! :D )
