Feathers Galore!

Hello!

I'm here with a flurry of feathery cards. The first is my entry into this week's CASE Study Challenge. This month at CASE Study, the muse is a selection of the best of the "Oh My Moxie Fab!" posts from Moxie Fab World. I will admit, that these posts were some of my favourites of Cath's. She always came up with something a little surprising, often sending me on journey's of discovery to find out more about the picture she had shared.
I used Waltzingmouse Stamps Fine Feathers stamps. The inks are SU! Cool Cabana (I thought smudging this across my card may be a good way to get rid of the WETness from my pad), plus some sponged Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Crushed Olive. The gold is Delicata Golden Glitz.
My other cards were not made for a particular challenge, but just because I love these feather stamps so much! This card was mostly me checking out how Mama Elephant Hazel ink stamps with a fine image. I can report that it stamps perfectly!
These next couple of cards were the original idea I had in my head when I first wanted feather stamps a long, LONG time ago.  The pink feather went to one of my daughter's violin teachers. It was taken off my craft desk almost before the ink dried! I think the ink is PTI Hibiscus Burst.
And finally this one, I used Memento Luxe Nautical Blue.
Today was the third day of school holidays. My youngest daughter still had her gymnastics lesson this afternoon, but other than that we had a day at home. The kids swam in the pool and watched tv. I think they thought they were in heaven! Next week I am back to work and the kids are off to vacation care... I think I'd rather stay on holidays. ;-)

Thanks for coming by to visit me!

Gorgeous! I love the splashes of color - particularly with the way you have smudging pads and sponging - and the gold color. I am equally in love with your simple feathers and sentiments.
