A Day For Daisies: Feather Challenge 7-31-15

It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies!  For our new challenge, we are showcasing Feathers!  Wow, did I have fun.  I couldn’t decide to stamp feathers, make feathers, use dies, or go outside and pick some off the ground.  There are so many fun ways to use feathers that I sure hope you join us in the fun.

For my Design Team inspiration, I chose one of the new release stamps called,  “Bird Family On A Branch.”  I colored the image with Copic Markers in a combination of both cool and warm colors.  I die cut the family out using a Sizzix rectangle die and applied Spun Sugar Distress Ink around the edges while the die was still in place to create that nice white border.

For the feathers, I started with WPlus9’s Fanciful Feathers die.  I then sprayed them using several Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays and distressed with Gathered Twigs. After that, I got out the Liquid Platinum embossing powder and my Perfect Medium Embossing Pen and went to town creating a center area for the powder to stick. I tied the feathers together with silver metallic thread, chose Simple Stories “Vintage Bliss,” as my pattern paper, and die cut the card panel out with a WPlus 9 card panel die.

I sure hope you’ll stop by and see all the other designers cards showing their “Feather” creations.  The challenge will run through Thursday, August 6th at Noon.  See you at A Day For Daisies Blog!

We’d also love for you to visit our Facebook Community Page as we’d love to see your cards there too!

Brown Sugar Challenge #157 Animals!

Happy Friday!  It’s time for a new challenge at Brown Sugar Challenges and today, we are featuring “Animals”.  This challenge is sponsored Robyn’s Fetish Digital Images who is offering a gift of 3 Digital Images for our winner.

For my card today, I’ve used Robyn’s Fetish image called, “Farah Fawn” to showcase my “Animal” card.  I colored Farah with Copic Markers and framed her using a My Favorite Things die with burlap paper by DCWV.   I gave her a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Chit Chat” set as well as a birdy friend from that same set.  My paper is Lawn Fawn’s “Into the Woods.”

Since I am no longer sending my cards to Operation Write Home I broke out my Wink of Stella glitter pen and gave birdy a bit of shine.
