What have you been upto recently? As promised I have returned to show you the card I made for my sons birthday, can’t believe my youngest is 33 already….where did that go!!!!
I was bored with the usual things, so I stood looking at the dies to see which caught my eye, and I spotted an old favourite and thought, “haven’t used this for a while”, so out it came for an airing. I love these Spellbinders feathers and they are so versatile in that you can colour and stamp them to make them your own and the deep embossing is still visible. I used the twisted citron, tumbled glass, chipped shappire and cracked pistachio distress inks and loved the colour combo. I used John Bloodworth stamps for the spots on the feathers with picket fence distress ink and tuxedo black memento. Using the same distress ink colours, I stamped a background with Gorgeous Grunge Stampin’ Up stamps. I used some scrap off cuts for the fishtail banners and stamped with Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings and the ‘son’ stamp is no longer available as Waltzingmouse Stamps has now closed (Such a pity). I glittered the ‘Son’ with Lime Green stickles.
The inside I used the same distress inks and made some smaller feathers, and the greeting is Phil Martin Decadent Damask. The tags are by Die-namics Stitched Tags. The background stamps are all Gorgeous Grunge and John Bloodworth.
So there you have it folks.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
