Feathers seem to be everywhere these days and I'm really enjoying this trend - there's something so dreamy about them. I have to admit though, I much prefer the stamped and die-cut kind to the real thing!
Today I have made a card for the Stamplorations - Stamp and Feathers challenge and hopefully it fits their sketch challenge (in a subtle way). I came across this company when I saw that my friend Shirley Bampton was on their design team. Their stamps are very unique and I know I will have to own some in the near future!
The feathers have been made with MFT dies. The blue feather was coloured with Chipped Sapphire disress ink and then I glued the tulle on to the feather. Actually this was done before it was die cut.
I coloured the gold feather with perfect pearls and versamark ink and when dried I stamped the script.
I added the feather charm to be the 3rd element in the sketch! What do you think, is that a bit too liberal? The sentiment is from Wplus9. I embossed the base of the card to add a bit more depth and this means I can enter it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Emboss It!
