Feather Frenzy ~

I’ve been in a feather frenzy lately…I just can’t stop creating with these classic beauties!  3 very special ladies in my life all had birthdays at the beginning of the month within 4 days of each other.  While I was playing with some metallic watercolors the other day, I decided to play with the feathers again and stuck with a layout that I’d used on my first feather card.

The background is stamped with Hero Arts Soft Pool and Brilliance and Brilliance Galaxy Gold.  I drew faint pencil lines to make sure I lined these up correctly.  This is actually the second one I did.  I forgot to erase the lines before adding the gold and it didn’t erase so well.  Oh well, live and learn! 

annie bday 2014 (1) The largest feather is watercolored with metallic gold paint.  These paints are so fun and shimmery!  The vellum feather is drawn on with a Sakura glitter pen and watercolored to spread the glitter around.  And the top feather is accented with the same glitter pen and some Ranger distress markers.  Pretty simple and fun to add all the detail.  The beautiful sentiment is from Wplus9 Designs – Embroidered Bouquet.  I love the swirly font!  I’m such a girl – lol!  And since this little ditty went to one of my favorite ladies and was made with her in mind, I’m entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Special Girl.

All righty!  I’ll try to come up with something a little different the next time I post.  I’m sorry I’ve been absent!  We went to California for an international Natural Products Expo and Disneyland (of course!) (can’t have business without a little pleasure!!)   On another note, in just a few days I’ll be back with the newest release from Lil’ Inker Designs!  LOTS of fun goodies for this one!
