Feathery Hello

Friday, April 4, 2014


I'm so honored to be the JUGS (Just Us Girls) Guest Designer for the month of April!  Today we have a sketch challenge:



My card base is a standard A2 size.  Next I die cut the feathers and colored them with three different Copic markers.  Once that was dry, they were heat embossed in white.  Each feather is adorned with a button and some twine.  They are attached with glue dots on top of the feather and then another glue dot directly behind the button to attach it to the card base.

The sentiment has been die cut five times and stacked to add a little more dimension and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Simon Says Stamp Woodgrain card stock, SU! vellum and SU! Basic Gray
Ink: Versamark
Stamps:  PTI Feather Finery
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, PTI Feather Finery die, MFT Happy Hello die-namics, heat gun, white embossing powder, MFT Steel Gray buttons, glue dots, Tombow Adhesive, Copics:  BG01, BG07, BG11, white twine
