With Love Feathers


Hello and welcome

I’m back with a card for HLS Watercolour Challenge for February 2019 with an optional twist of METALLICS! However, anything  watercolour is just fine.

I have decided on a CAS card featuring this beautiful feather from Kaisercraft’s ‘ Feather’ Dies & Stamps set.  I must admit I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it instore.  Luckily, it was on a discount day and home it came.  However, I haven’t had a chance to play until now.

From a piece of watercolour paper, I cut a front panel using MFT Blueprints 26 set.

After gold heat embossing the feather, I used Gansai Tambi watercolours to loosely colour the image and add a few splatters.

Once the panel was adhered to the card front, I added a die cut sentiment from a local company which had been gold heat embossed twice (to give it more dimension).

So quick and easy but I was happy with the way it turned out!  I hope you like it too!

Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.  Good luck!

Thanks so much for visiting

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. We certainly were on the same wave with our cards this month Helen. It’s as if we were crafting together – feathers and colours so similar. Love your background wash as it highlights that beautiful feather perfectly. Gorgeous card.
