Let The Heavy Stuff Go

I've had been deeply contemplating the following question today: How many feather stamp sets does a girl need? After much deliberation, I have come to the following answer: "One more feather stamp set you need" (said in the voice of Yoda). Currently, this is my favourite one (it's STAMPlorations Feathery). Tomorrow, how knows?

I was inspired by the beautiful inspiration image over at Inspired by All the Small Things. I probably need not say more. I'm also linking up over at CAS on Friday where the theme is Embossing and at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where Anything Goes this week. I heat embossed the feathers in gunmetal embossing powder and watercoloured the feathers using Distress Inks. Last, I stamped and heat embossed one of the sentiments from Noteworthy 2 and fussy cut part of the sentiment banner. Note to self, I need to get a lighter weight black card, the one I have is super heavy and really tricky to fussy-cut, and thanks to the magic of eBay I hope I will have some early next week.

Card: 300 gsm Daler&Rowney watercolor paper, silver grey card base, scrap of black card
Stamps: STAMPlorations FeatheryNoteworthy 2
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Versamark, Tim Holtz Distress Inks 
Other: Gunmetal embossing powder (no brand) and Wow Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powde
