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:

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
