Feathers


Hello! Last week I made quite a number of cards for my brother to take home.  Guess I've never mentioned it, my brother is a theologian, and we're all so proud of him.  But it's frustrating asking him questions about faith, cos his standard answer is the more you know, the less you really know.

I have been wanting to break out my new Waltzing Mouse stamps, and this was the perfect, perfect opportunity.  I love the Scripture sentiment Claire has added in this beautiful Fine Feathers set.

As I had so little time, I kept the card rather simple.  Teal is the colour of the week for me :)  I used Memento Teal Zeal on this card.

My second card was created with the Funky Feathers and the background stamp Crackle Mini, using approximately the same colour scheme.

Here's a close up of the crackle mini stamp - I LOVE it!!


Just one last card to share, for the Doll challenge:


The doll was coloured with Copic markers.  I just wished I had more time to decorate the card :)



Thanks for visiting me.

Have a wonderful week!!
Kary

Two beautiful creations Kary! I love the blue and off white colors. That Psalm is just perfect with the feather images - and the crackle looks gorgeous behind it! Thanks for coming to the WMS Pajama party!

These are both wonderful!
I only ordered Fancy Feathers, but I'm totally regretting not getting the funky feather set right away, too....

Claire said...

Wow Kary - these are all absolutely stunning! The doll card is amazing...I don't think you need anything else on it!

Love them all! Love the feather stamp too! So realistic! Looks like someone had time to craft!!

You always amaze me Kary! Gorgeous as always! Love all the blue - it looks so soft and natural with the feathers. What stopped me in my tracks was how you colored the doll. Just look at that face!!! AMAZING!

2 beautiful and very different cards, Kary. I love the feather card with it's message of peace. After making my first ever purchase from WM, and seeing your precious doll card, I'm rethinking not getting the doll stampset. Your ornate frame showcased both cards perfectly. Your brother sounds like a very wise man! We see through a glass darkly right now, someday the veil will lift for all His own!

I love, love LOVE your first card - my favourite colour scheme!

Kelly S. said...

Oh Kary, these are stunning projects! I just love you coloring on the first, so authentic for a Russian Nesting Doll! The papers and your choice of oval frame are just a perfect fit for that one, too. Your feather cards are sooo elegant. Love the layout of the Funky Feathers one and the way you stamped the sentiment on the blue crackle with a little handmade feather frame! You always AMAZE!!!!!!!!!!

Lovely cards. Didn't realise that feathers can be used to create such beautiful cards.
