A Day For Daisies: Feather Challenge 7-31-15
Posted by urrn4u
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!
