Less Is More - Off the Page!

Another Less is More challenge and this time Chrissie and Mandi want you to go "off the page".  That's right, your image should be off the edge of the card and as an extra challenge they don't want any scored lines either.
Oh yes, just before I go any further I would just like to say that I appreciate the little "pointer" comments that are given.  After all nobody's perfect and if a little pointer makes your card from OK to great then surely that's what it is all about.  So thanks Chrissie for your comment about the sentiment - and yes you are quite right it would have looked better black - I'll remember that.
So without further ado here is the card I made for this challenge:
Both the sentiment and the feather stamp are from Clarity Stamp.  I have quite alot of Barbara's stamps and am having great fun giving them a well deserved airing.
I didn't want too much colour on this card so I used a pale blue watercolour pencil on the edges of the feathers and dragged the colour towards the middle.  What d'ya think - too much or not enough??
I think there may be one too many feathers on here too - the one nearest the fold at the bottom - should have left it out I think - not sure.  Hey ho it's done now - note to self - learn to step away from the card!! LOL
See you next week girls.

  18. It's often easy to see things in hindsight, not so easy in the imagination. If you were to have left off the feather you mentioned, then the one next to it would have looked better a little closer to the right corner... but all in all it looks pretty good as it is!
    The colouring is fine, but a slightly darker shade where the natural shadows fall would always add authenticity.
    Thanks for joining us once more!

  22. Dawn....I LOVE that feather stamp...and I think your presentation is absolutely PERFECT! Don't change a thing!!

  23. Less id definitely more! I think all of the feathers are placed perfectly and not one should be eliminated. The lower one closest to the fold balances the triangle.
    Your colouring is delicate and light... just like the feather.
    The sentiment is fanulous... Well done!
