STAMPlorations Challenge #3 - Stamps and Feathers


Hello, and welcome to my first post as a Design Team member for STAMPlorations!  This month's challenge is all about using stamps and feathers.  I've used the Vignette set Trendy Feathers.



I swooshed some card through Evergreen Bough and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks, then stamped the feathers in Versafine Onyx Black and cut them out.  I stencilled some Distress Ink through a masked portion of a Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil, stamped the sentiment over the top, then added some cotton and a button.

Head on over to the STAMPlorations blog to see what my Design Team buddies have created and I hope you'll be inspired to join in.  Here's the deal:

PRIZE
The winner will receive 2 Vignette or Patchwork Frenzy clear stamp sets of her choice. (Visit the shop to see the available stamp sets.) Also, the winner will be invited to be the Guest Designer in next month's challenge.

A TWIST IN OUR CHALLENGES
Each month, we host 3 challenges: 1 monthly challenge that starts on the 1st Friday and 2 bi-weekly sketch challenges that start on the 1st and 3rd Monday. Those who participate in all 3 challenges for the month will be in the running to receive a prize package from our sister shop, All About Scrapping. We'll randomly pick one winner and announce who that is the following month before the next monthly challenge starts. Remember, you must participate in all 3 challenges that month for a chance to win a prize.

  7. Wow, Shirley ... first the colour combo, where the gentleness of the feather vanes is reflected in the underlying soft shades ... and then the cotton 'tangle', wonderful how it mimics that same softness! Anita :)
