Thanks Chickie

Here's my card for this week's SCS featured stamper challenge.  I haven't used my Funky Feathers set from Waltzingmouse Stamps in a while, so when I saw this pretty card featuring feathers, I decided to use it as the starting point for my design.

I inked one of the feather images with several different colors of ink before stamping it on white cardstock.  It took a few tries to come up with a pair of feather images I liked!  Once that was done, I carefully cut them out and set them aside while I assembled the rest of the card.

I used pretty much the same layout as on the original design, but with a few less layers and details.  The patterned paper is from my 12x12 paper stash that I'm trying to whittle down.  I matted it on a kraft panel, then topped it with a matching aqua panel cut along the top with a notebook border punch.  A pair of die cut fishtail flag strips are adhered over the aqua panel at an angle.  The feathers are adhered over the left ends of the fishtail flag strips.  I used my Bow Easy to make a double looped bow from a scrap of linen thread and attached it to the bottom of the feathers with a tiny glue dot.  After all the elements were in place, I stamped the set's "thanks chickie" sentiment on the aqua panel in brown ink.  A trio of enamel dots around the panel adds a little dimension and shine, while keeping the card relatively flat--and easy to mail!
