Peace Feathers

There's some gorgeous inspiration up on the Case Study Challenge Blog, again from this month's muse, Debby Hughes.

I just love what Debby does with whites and vellum and all those pretty details. I was definitely inspired by everything she used - the gold, the white, the kraft, the feathers. Here is my card:

We're enjoying a very dull cloudy day so it was difficult to get a nice photo. The middle feather was masked and the top was embossed with some Zing Gold Metallic embossing powder while the bottom was glittered.  It's a very simple, even plain card, but I love the way each piece fit together exactly like a puzzle.


Cardstock: PTI Stamper's Select White, Kraft
Dies: PTI One Liners Christmas; WPlus9 Fanciful Feathers
Other: Zing Gold Metallic embossing powder; Doodlebug Lily White glitter

LOVE this feather card, what you did with the middle feather is stunning!!! I'm a Canadian too, I live in Stoney Creek, ON and also love PTI. I hope to start my own blog--LOVE your blog name, cool!!! I've also never tried doing challenges but would like to try. I do have a complication of extreme pain, was disabled in a car accident about 20 years ago and had to leave my career as a classical musician, I worked as a music performance professor in eastern Canada, then had to relocate to find medical care and when the treatment and surgeries did not work, I decided to stay in Ontario. Just wanted to say hello, I saw your post on the Noel set, I hope that someone will sell it to you--I understand how it is when you passionately NEED that stamp set or die, etc!!! LOVE your blog, you are a talented artist! I have a very tiny gallery on Splitcoaststampers and hope perhaps in the new year to start a blog. I need to think of a name though... I'm originally from Moncton, NB... Just wanted to express my admiration for your cards and to say hello.

Best wishes,
