Stamplorations and Paper Players

My blogging friend Maria and DT buddy inspired me to play in this month Stamplorations challenge. The theme is stamps and feathers. Perhaps you'll want to join in with their challenge. I'll be starting on their fantastic DT perhaps as soon as February and like her I am waiting for my new trendy feathers set to arrive, but I am not completely featherless....So I pulled out my Hero Arts feather stamps set and thought I give the chalkboard technique over at the Paper Players another try.





I also added the gold embossed fountain pen tip to the Hero Arts feather, its from the Papertrey Happy Trails set, as is the sentiment and the little ink splatter. 


I stamped it all with Versamark and heat embossed it. I sponged white chalk ink along the feather and to give it some shimmer I added Perfect Pearls in the end, so now its chalkboard with a shimmer. Looks really pretty and this time I got a "very nice" out of my husband. the usual commentary is just "nice"....

I am also linking this card with CAS-ual Fridays - in a word. I already have one card linked up there with the word JOY, but I guess THANKS is always a good to use!

Great card, Cornelia! Love that feather! You have been busy making lots of wonderful cards so far this year. I haven't managed to make even one. I just got back from holidays on Monday and I'm still trying to get organized. Doesn't help that I've managed to hurt my back which is making everything more difficult. I'm dying to get into my craft area and play with all my new goodies but I really need to clean it up first before I do. I got your lovely Christmas card. Loved all the sparkle! I've got it displayed on my wall above my craft table with all the other handmade cards I've received. :-). Well, I hope you are having a great new year so far! Hugs! Kim :-)

Hahaha, I always read into hubby's reactions too! They are subtle, but you can definitely pick up on them. LOVE how you gold embossed the feather tip. Great detail, Cornelia! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
