Fancy Feathers

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

When Stephanie told me I had won 4 Clearly Besotted stamp sets of my choice I knew one of the sets would be Fancy Feathers!  I love this set.  It was out of stock at the time, but it was worth waiting for.  Stephanie offered to hold off sending me my sets until this set came in.
Feathers are special to me.  I have a thing for birds;  I just love them.  My husband knows how much I love birds and every time he finds a pretty feather he saves if for me. I have quite a collection of beautiful feathers that have been given to me by him. 

The feathers have been embossed with white embossing powder. 
 Each one has been sponged with two ink colors and the cut out. 
Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a Happy 4th of July to those of you in the US.
We will be celebrating with family!

  1. Kara, this is stunning. So soft and gorgeous.

  2. So soft and dreamy with these colors...
    gorgeous, as always!
    And how sweet that he saves feathers for you!
    My boys love them...
    came home with a handful one afternoon from school...
    Ryder couldn't even hold all of his he had so many!
    Patrick thought a coyote had gotten a turkey in the parking lot because they were everywhere.
    Turns out a friend was to blame.
    It was raining and she knew something had hit the front of her car...
    she drove to town and back with people flashing their lights...
    so she was thinking "cops" ahead...
    She had hit a turkey and it was spreadeagle across her grill like the character that Hannibal Lector killed in Silence of the Lambs!
    She had one of the maintenance guys come get it off her car...
    that's where all the feathers had come from...
    and my boys loved it! :)

  3. I am still laughing about Renee's story! My first thought is all the germs.....
    Love this gorgeous card Kara! You managed to make the feathers look so light and airy. Fun thing to collect. My husband finds sm. heart shaped rocks and gives them to me.
    Love your card! I get my WMS feathers today and can't wait.

  4. Laughing at Renee story too, but your card is absolutely stunning Kara! I think this might me my current new favourite card of yours! The feathers looks so realistic!

  5. Renee tells the funniest stories...still laughing as I type this, but your card is so beautiful...brings me right back to the soft colors and realistic look of those feathers. How lucky you are to have a husband who is so thoughtful and sensitive!

  6. Renee is SO funny! LOVE what you did with YOUR feathers! They are so realistic and beautifully colored. The soft colors are perfect. I'm waiting for my WM set and can't wait.
