MCT 37th Edition Release Blog Hop

Hello! You should have come from Shar's Blog, if not, head HERE to start at the beginning. For my card I have used the fabulous new Boughs Of Holly set. I turned the "boughs" in the set into feathers. :) Here's how I did it...I inked up the stamp with worn lipstick distress ink. I then pounced on spiced marmalade and picked raspberry distress markers. I then spritzed the stamp 3 times from a foot away. Then stamped it on to water color paper. Then I used a brush to swish the color around. To finish, I used the end of my paint brush to drag color up from the bottom to make the "stem/vein/i dunno". HA! I then used the coordinating dies in the new Boughs Of Holly set to cut them out. 
I used the "happy" die, also from the Boughs Of Holly set. I cut it out 5 times and glued them together. I used tarnished brass distress stain to color it. I also used that distress stain to stamp "birthday", which is also in the Boughs Of Holly set. I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies for my shaker window. Phew...So, do you think my "feathers" look like feathers? :)

Have fun hoppin'! Your next stop is MICIA

  4. Oh my word, this is fabulous how you turned the boughs into feathers. I love seeing extra ways to use Miss Emma's products, other than their intended use. Makes them so much more versatile. Thanks for this idea.
