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:

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
