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:
