Spotlight on Trendy Feathers


 Hi, its Cornelia here today, 
playing with trendy feathers from STAMPlorations!




And that's how this card came together:
My supplies:




I die cut the Poppy fluffy feather from white cardstock.





Inked up the feathers and stamped around the opening, masking off the top part



Stamped the sentiment onto the die cut, cut 5 more feathers and glued them together. Still needed more definition so I sponged around the edges.



Assembles the card after adding a silk ribbon to the feather and some sequins. 


 You like it? I do. Now in retrospect you may ask why I bothered cutting out the feather first? Well, because I originally had something else in mind, but then things took  it own course and that was what I ended up with.... I usually have a vague idea of what I'm going to do and then  I see where it takes me.


How do  you make your cards? More structured? I'd be interested to know. 
Much fun to combine stamping with die cutting. I am sure you all know this already.... 
Have a great day and thanks for visiting. If you want to go over to STAMPlorations to check out their fabulous stamps and stencils click
