Fascinated...

I certainly wasn't surprised when I saw Moxie Fab World was doing a "Fascination with Feathers" challenge as I can see this is a real trend right now. I for one definitely love it, and instantly wanted to play along.


I know I only just recently shared a feathery card I made, and only wished I could have used it for this challenge as it's one of my recent favourites. But I took that same concept and used it to inspire some new cards instead.


Yes, I made these feathers from scratch! Just hand-drew a design I liked and glued some floral wire between two layers of them. It's simple enough that Munchy made her own along with me - it was some wonderful bonding mother and daughter scrapping time :-)


I then Glimmermisted to my hearts content (yes I think Glimmermisted should be a verb!) and smothered them in fine crystal glitter. The chipboard hearts are a cute touch, and it's mainly because I've got two more weddings coming up that I thought I could use these for so I had to add something a little more 'romantic' than feathers.


I only just realised I used my last feathery card for a wedding too. I wonder what it is about feathers that make me think they're appropriate wedding embellishments? Hhhhmmmmm....


And just to remind myself later of what Glimmermist colours I used, I took this photo too :-)
Key Lime Pie, Sapphire and Pink Taffy in case you're wondering!
