Thinking of you

I made this card for the inspirational Thursday challenge at Mark's Finest Papers. My mom buys me random crafty things and these green feathers arrived Friday by mail-She is a snowbird off in Florida and I'm in cold blah Michigan. As soon as I saw this weeks challenge I thought the feathers looked like the eyes in the first photo but with the color scheme of the third. Check out these eye photos:




I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels to make the background on SU cardstock. The patterned paper behind the misted cs is by Doodlebug Designs, die cut by Spellbinders in yellow Recollections cs, and green burlap ribbon by The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is heat embossed in white and then I ran the cs through a pool of two different yellow distress inks. I had to use two because one was too yellow and the other too orange so I put them together to see what I would get. I used a SU scallop circle punch on the sentiment and went around the edges of each scallop with a Wink of Stella clear gold glitter pen.

  2. Wow, that was perfect timing for your package to arrive with the perfect feathers. I had pink feathers like that and never thought of using them. Duh! :) I love the feathers so I am glad you used them. I also like how you used the pretty die with the sentiment to make it look like a flower. I am happy you joined us for the Speedy TV Inspiration challenge this week. Hope to see you again next week. Happy Easter.
