Floating Feather and Day 9 Advent Village

This week's CASE Study is in honour of Cath Edvalson, who recently stepped down as Trends Editor at Paper Crafts Magazine, leaving a gaping hole in the crafting world in her wake.  The inspiration comes from a past Oh My Moxie Fab post:

I've used the same technique as yesterday: sponged Distress Inks onto card, spritzed a stamp with water, stamped, restamped, respritzed, restamped, then gold embossed the same stamp as the main focus and added a little colour to the centre with markers.

I'm also entering this into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Make Your Own Background (using Gelli plate or stencils if you can).  

Peacock feather stamp by Inca.


Day 9 Advent Village

Slightly blurred photographs - do not adjust your set :)


  1. Shirley, this card is totally beautiful. W O W, now I need a feather stamp so I can try doing this.

  2. Wow ... WOW ... W.O.W, Shirley ... my breath is so completely taken away by this stunning card that I'm almost not breathing at all! Beyond gorgeous! Anita :)

  3. Another piece worthy of framing! You have shaded & blended the colors so beautifully and flawlessly - the colors flow so evenly into each other! Absolutely gorgeous! The peacock feather looks amazing embossed in gold with just a hint of color in the center.


  4. Absolutely GORGEOUS card, Shirley! Your background is so beautiful...looks like an Impressionist painting! I love your gold embossed feather, too!
    Your advent village is really coming along beautifully, too! I hope we get to see it finished as well!

  5. My goodness you are soooo creative! This is fantastic! I'm voting for this one for sure!!! I'm going to give your technique a go!

  6. Amazing. Love the gorgeous colors and the gold feather is the perfect accent. Thanks for playing along witht the Make Your Own Background Challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

  7. Seriously stunning! I'm going to have to try this. You make it sound easy but I'm guessing my results wont be nearly as gorgeous as this! Wow! Breath taking!

  8. OK, let's start here. This feather wafting down with the few sparse sparkles - WOW. Gorgeous background with the water stamping. Love that touch.
