F is for...


Hi blog friends!
 
The latest Craft Barn Alpha challenge is letter F, with the added condition that the word chosen must begin with the letters FE to FR.  I've gone with "Feather" 
 
One of the things I love about ATCs is the speed.  I've mentioned elsewhere that crafting has had to take a back seat of late (but soon, my lovelies, I shall be back up to full strength - mwah-hah-hah!)  I coloured the reverse side of a piece of Centura Pearl card with DI's in Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Black Soot.  Once it was dry I stamped the small feather (a Sam Poole stamp) in Versamark and brushed on some mica powders in gold, turquoise and green.

I stamped the large feather in FlitterGlu and gilded it and job was done.

Thank you for visiting - hope you enjoyed yourself!

Crafty Hugs,

Keren

Mmmm, love this Keren. It's a fabulous mix of colours and has such an Oriental feel that works really well with the feathers. The reverse of Centura seems to work well for mixing colours on. Hope everything gets back on an even keel soon. Hugs, Jenny x
