you are my happy (STAMPlorations, ATCAS, RIC)


What would you come up with for this sketch?  There's still time to play along with Sketch Challenge #4 at STAMPlorations.  Here's what I did with my new Trendy Feathers stamp set.  I love how "real" this feather looks - hailing from Lake Huron's shores I've seen a lotta feathers in my time ;)


Got me some new washi tape.  Yes, I do have enough.  But five coordinating rolls to a pack?   Don't ya love the teensy floral print? I got two packs.  I'm bad.

Put washi strips down on CS and die cut the alphas.  Knew where I wanted to place the alphas, so I put a strip of washi down making sure the patterns would line up when I adhered the alphas.  Been doubling or tripling the die cuts lately to give 'em more umph. A tiny heat embossed sentiment and voila!

Playing at:


Runway Inspired Challenge #52 cuz at first glance the splashes of color on her dress reminded me of cascading feathers.
Addicted to CAS #30 cuz my washi's brand-spanking new.

Thanks for visiting.  Case you're interested, here's a recent shot of Miss Ellie.  Going on seven months.




Supplies for you make me happy
Paper:  cardbase The Paper Studio
Stamps: STAMPlorations
Ink : Hero Arts, Versamark
