I never really did get into the ‘feather’ phase and when the call came from the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for this as inspiration I initially wrote it off…  and while I was waiting for some texture paste to dry,  I remembered that I won the Thataway collection from Studio Calico a little while back and it had some die cut feathers, and then I found the stitched thingys and then I just started adding stuff and all of a sudden I’d made a card that I hadn’t intended to do in a style that is very different to my usual, so go figure, I had some fun!  Then my texture paste was dry and I was back to the card I had originally started lol.

I suppose it’s good to push those comfort zones a little every now and then.  Have a fabulous day!

Video : It’s time to Colour with ‘U’!

Welcome to my new series called Colour with ‘U’.  I decided since I have so many fabulous stamps (wink) and I enjoy colouring sooo much that this series would be fun.  With so many different mediums and techniques this series could go on forever…  but I suppose we’ll have to see about that one lol.

I know that many of us struggle to make those all so difficult masculine cards, so today I thought I’d kick things off with a very CAS masculine design using one of my all time fave mediums, Prismacolor Pencils!

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.
