I started off with the beautiful Feather stencil, and I used white embossing paste to get the image on to my cardstock. But instead of smoothing it out like you normally would, I used my palette knife to tap at the paste, to give it lots of yummy texture. Then I let it dry. 

Then I used clear adhesive to apply some fun holographic glitter. After that dried, I inked (with my finger) some teal stamping ink, and I sprayed pink irRESISTables as well. More texture! See the watery look to the cardstock? That's the irRESISTables. It's also the pink that's on the feather. I added some watercolors to the feather too, to dull down the white. 

I took some core'dnations cardstock and sanded it to show off the texture. Next, I embossed the Thinking of You sentiment with my silver embossing paste. I tore one edge and glued it, plus I added a corner to the top. I also drew in some faux stitching with a white gel pen. 

I just love working with this feather. I have about 3 projects that I am working on with it right now. If you haven't added it to your collection yet, you should! Now, here is the full hop list for today:

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
