Moving Along With The Times...Feathers or Birds...


No post from me yesterday..I was recovering from the Cinco de Mayo festivities...

Welcome to another fun Moving Along With The Times Challenge. Hosted by my most awesome friend Jessie (aka Craft Buddy..).

Her theme this week is Feathers or Birds..excellent and very on trend.

I went with feathers, as I got a free feather die and matching stamp set when I was in London in February.

I die cut the feathers in black and white. Then I added some clear Versamark ink to the ends and added black embossing powder.

To make the glittery ones, I used Judikins sticky stuff (instead of ink), heat it for a moment and then added the glitter and heat it again for a minute.

I love that sticky stuff powder its magic!

I layered the feathers and secured them together before wrapping the twine around them.

I used my stitched rectangle die as an embossing plate to add a subtle detail to the backing paper, as the feathers are so full on..

Final touch was to stamp the sentiment, from the March SSS card kit.

It was so much fun to make this card, I made a few others in different colours and used different powders. Fun to play with a theme.

Now its your turn to play along..go over to MAWTT and check out all the fun creations from my teammates.



  1. This is awesome - I love the techniques used to get that dip dye effect. And no ink!? That's crazy. I bet it has some wicked texture. Love the red, black and white as well. Win.
