Say It With Feathers


Not quite sure what's going on with my camera today but it's not playing pretty, even with perfectly good daylight, sorry about that.

This first card is for CAS(E) This Sketch, and I just had to use my STAMPlorations Vignette Eclectic Florals set for the cute little jar.  I was tempted to use the flowers but thought I'd see what feathers would look like in the jars.  The feathers are from the Vignette Trendy Feathers set.


I've used the colour scheme from Colour Me...! although they don't look quite so subtle after all my messing editing.

After I'd made the first card, I made this one to fit (sort of!) the current STAMPlorations Sketch Challenge.  There's still time to enter that and the monthly challenge (stamps and stitches).




It's a one layer card so I'm entering it into One Layer Simplicity's challenge, Can You Repeat That?  Actually, both cards are eligible as they are both one layer and feature repeat stamping, so you get a two-fer for coming to look!

  4. Awesome feathers, awesome mason jars! I love that you switched out the flowers for the feathers - totally trendy!

    The skillful way in which you colored the jars would make Leonardo and Pablo jealous!

  5. I love how you made the jars look 'antique'...very cool idea, and so clever to use feathers instead of flowers, too ~ Beautiful cards, Shirley!
