Feather Overload

I was going to clear out my crafting desk today. Instead, I have made a few cards and a much more horrible mess! Oh well, priorities, eh? Next, I'm heading into the kitchen to make buns which I'll fill with whipped cream and jam. We make them back home for Shrove Tuesday, but I didn't feel like waiting for another week so why not!

Anyhow, what about today's card? I was inspired by the inspiration image and sketch over at Fusion Card Challenge and the colours over at Color Throwdown to create this feathery card. I first tried to create the feathers using Vellum to get that stained glass look, but every time I tried to stamp on the vellum, the ink just wouldn't dry and made an absolutely horrible mess on the beautifully colourful vellum. So I went for plan b using card and Distress Oxides instead. I'm also linking up over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where Anything Goes.
