Stamps and Feathers at STAMPlorations!



Hi friends!
We are very excited about our January Challenge at STAMPlorations because this is the first time the DT -selected from the November DT call- has created cards for STAMPlorations challenges. If you haven't had a chance to visit these ladies yet I'd highly suggest it, they are all great! Here are links to the blogs of these talented women:


There was another DT Call in the December Challenge -stay tuned for the results! :)

Anyways, to our currant challenge! I used two STAMPlorations sets for my card: VIGNETTE: Trendy Feathers and VIGNETTE: Chevron and Arrows. I started the card by adding Distress Inks to the background -I rubbed some ink colors to an ancrylic block, spritzed water to the block and then "stamped" the colors to my card. After this was dry, I used a stencil for sponging hexagons to opposite corners of the background... And then stamped some chevrons and arrows to other opposite corners. I like to be messy and inky but in a controlled manner! :) Then it was time for the stamped feathers and sentiment and after tying my ribbon and matting, the card was done! A fast, fun project.

Remember that you do not have to own a feather-stamp for participating -if you have some feather-embellies or dies, that will work great too! I can't wait to visit your blogs and see what you'll make. Happy crafting!

I'd like to enter:
