Fine Feathers!

There is a fun new event over at Waltzing Mouse Stamps – the pyjama party!

Its a fun new way to inspire you to use your new stamps. I happened to buy the Fine Feathers set on release night and unfortunately only got to open the set this weekend! Shame on me…..but you know how life can be. So I had great fun breaking it out and getting inky and joining in the Tickle Me Silly challenge!

I stamped the feathers in grey ink on a white card background. I then splattered this with pink ink (spun sugar reinker). While this dried I stamped the feathers and fussy cut them. I inked up a kraft tag with pumice stone distress ink. I then actually stamped the feathers on the kraft too, but at the ink dried the feathers seemed to fade into nothing, so strange!

I added a label sticker that I selectively masked part of a sentiment from the set onto. I foam mounted the feathers on the kraft. I foam mounted the kraft on the card too for more dimension.  I also added some dots of pearls to give some flow. Its a really simple little card but it gave me lots of fun stamping time in a short space of time 🙂
