AYSI139 Feather


Hi everyone!  I am squeaking this card in just under the wire for the pretty As You See It sketch:

AYSI #139

This one uses a Papertrey set called What The Doodle Feather:


At the stamp show on Saturday, I had seen a similar feather colored in gorgeous peacock hues--blues and greens---so I couldn't wait to get home and do something along those lines.  I heat-embossed my image in black embossing powder, then painted in the areas with Mint Macaron, Garden Green, Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Soft Sky.  Then I stamped the smaller feather around the background with Versamark ink.  For the sentiment, I stamped the "Hello" (same set) in white ink on a vellum banner and embossed it with white embossing powder:


I added a little white cording, tied in a bow and some pretty sequins and mounted it on a Bermuda Bay card that was embossing with the Elegant Dots EF.  So elegant!

On Sunday I had a chance to see a couple of my cousins on my mom's side; I don't get to see many of them so it was nice to catch up!  My cousin Cindy, in the center, is one of the best cooks I know...she had a Candyland-themed birthday party for her granddaughter that was so cute!  And I am sure I gained a few pounds with the spread she had laid out! And Pat, on the right, is a marvel seamstress....she made me a little Jingle Jack clown doll from fabric yoyos when I was born and I still have it!  It's a little ragged, but it still jingles!  And she was just a little thing when she made it!  I think our Nan Barber passed down all her crafty genes to us!  Thanks Nan!

  5. What a beautiful feather on this card. I love the colors! I love the photo too, and enjoyed hearing about the handmade keepsake you kept through the years. I'm a sentimental fool too and treasure those hand-made items I've been given through throughout my life. They're heartfelt and genuine keepsakes!
