Feathers

Hello my crafting friends, good to have you here with me today and I hope you are all having a good weekend.

May I give a warm welcome to my newest follower Jenny L. great to have you on board Jenny. Jenny has a wonderful blog of her own so please do take a look you can view it HERE

Tomorrow would have been my parents 69th wedding Anniversary had they lived to celebrate it, I often wonder what they would look like now, its also coming up to my 10th wedding Anniversary on the 7th May so I had better get my thinking hat on for a card for Hubby lol! Don't know where those 10 years went!


Now I had this small piece of card, that I had stenciled through with modelling paste, that I wanted to use as well as some feathers I had die cut, one being from the coloured background I made for my friends birthday card a few weeks ago, you can view it HERE. I did cut the edge of the feathers down to the spine so they did have the effect of real feathers and once cut they did seem to find there own shape which was rather nice.

I coloured the card with the paste on in Chipped Sapphire, Iced Spruce and Peacock Feathers, matted and layered it onto some embossed card and Teal card.

I added a banner with the sentiment then arranged the Feathers on top so the ends went under the banner and stuck these down.

Inside I added a piece of Teal card followed by a piece of White card to write on.

A tiny card made up of odd bits in my stash box of left overs, I quite like the feathers and may make up a stash for future use.
