blessed vellum feather by Kimberly Crawford

Feathers are pretty trendy right now and like always, I started wondering...wondering if I could make my own? It was actually pretty easy to do. I cut vellum to the size and basic shape of the feather I wanted. The wire was adhered to the center. For my feather, I used these darling twist ties from Close To My Heart. (The excess paper was trimmed off the edges.) Once dry, I cut into the vellum with scissors, repeatedly, until I was happy with the fringe results.

The background is stamped, but to give it a softer look, once it was inked, I misted it lightly with water before stamping. I added washi strips (cut from WR Memory Keepers 6x6 washi) and gems and enamel dots (from Close To My Heart) to finish the card off. Fun and very different for me!

If you are looking to learn some new techniques today, be sure and visit my YouTube channel for lots of ideas. With well over 50 videos, hopefully something catches your eye! 
And there are quite a few videos over on the Paper Crafts Magazine Channel too! (a few with yours truly :))
