Feathered Heartfelt Thanks

I've been having a bit of a clear out of the craft room - selling some stamps and punches I no longer used (and in some cases had never used at all...).  I made some thank you cards to go with the stamps. I had some backgrounds from when I started practicing with Distress Oxides which weren't good enough to use as backgrounds but felt like I didn't want them to go to waste so I stamped some feathers and heat embossed them in white. I will have to say fussy cutting 18 feathers wasn't the best of ideas - in hindsight I should have picked a stamp with a matching die. But I love these gorgeous feathers, so it was worth the fuss(y cutting).

After I had all my feathers embossed and cut, I die cut a square mask to ink through to create the backgrounds. I used different combinations of Oxides and splattered some water to create those gorgeous water splatters. Then I added some of my new washi tape before attaching the feathers and stamping the sentiment in Versafine black.

What a lovely set! I like the central squares of watercolors blended so well. The feathers give such a lightness to the card. Thank you for joining Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
