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!
