Two LONG days at work--don't know how I did full-time all those years--LOL! I do have a beautiful country drive to get there & along the way is a farm with some peacocks. A couple different feather stamps are on my wishlist, so no stamps to use for the current City Crafter Challenge Blog theme.
However, I got these Spellbinders dies on a big clearance a year ago & finally opened the package. I'm a sucker for embossing folders & used a coupon a few months ago to get the Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Feather Illusion folder. Thought it'd be a great one to try out Alexandra's technique with paint you can see HERE. I used Distress Paints seedless preserves & spun sugar. I added a bit more paint directly on the cardstock--probably could have used a heavier hand with it on the folder. Distress Stain brushed pewter was added randomly. The die cuts were inked with the seedless preserves & then silver "dipped" (Versamark & silver embossing powder). I also silver embossed the sentiment from PTI SAF 1920s & finished off with white satin ribbon tied in a bow.
Girly birthday card ready for a friend, so I'm also entering at Seize the Birthday. A scrap was used for the die cuts, so I'll join in at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to read my blog.
Edited to Add: Just realized I can enter the Dies R Us Challenge.
