Feathery Birthday

How are you doing this beautiful Sunday morning? I can see a strange light phenomenon up in the sky, it's like a yellow light, not sure how to describe it - it... shines? Haven't seen that for ages. My neighbour kindly dragged me out for a run earlier, despite my kicking and screaming. Now that it's over I'm thankful she did it, although at the moment I wasn't a happy bunny, and still feel a bit hoarse from all the screaming... Happy I've got that unpleasantness out of the way and filled up on a cup gallon of coffee I'm starting to feel a bit better.  Ready to clean the house spend the rest of the day in the craft room.

I absolutely love feather stamps, so of course, I had to have the new Feathery set from STAMPlorations. I took it out for a test run today, trying some Copic blending with different colours. It looks easy when you see others do it on YouTube videos, but it's actually not that easy in real life, I'll tell you!

I was inspired by the colours over at Just Add Ink and the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm also linking up with the Tag It theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and Layer It Up at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

Card: 200 gsm white shimmer card, kraft card, scraps of yellow and turquoise card, Hobbycraft 190 gsm white card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Feathery and matching dies, Balloons and Banners
Ink and Colouring: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink Vintage Photo, Copics
