Fancy Feathers

Hi!! It's a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy and for the next two weeks we want to see zippers or feathers. I purchased the Sweet Pea stamp a couple of weeks ago and right away knew I wanted to color her in monotone colors and make her eyes just come out at you. Well after inking her up and coloring her in W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9 she just waited....

Everything just fell into place all at once, this great challenge, the ribbon, the feathers and the bling. I have to say this one is one of my favorites. About my ribbon, I got it at our local craft store. I have been playing with making all kinds of flowers, the ribbon is folding in half and stitched and gathered. This one was just perfect for this card with it's button from Tim Holtz.

This card almost didn't make it. Apparently my sweet but crazy cat Percy loves the feathers! The first time I laid out the card, he ran off with the flower, when I finally started putting it all together he ran off with the card! I usually display my cards on my bookcase for a little while this one has to go behind the curio glass.

Come join us over at Fussy and Fancy. Come take a look at the unique ideas for your zippers and feathers.
