bird of a feather

Hi Hermine here, today I made a card and used ultra gloss embossing powder for the bird.

step 1: take a rectangle card but don't fold it yet. Spray with Bistre. Stamp the clockface 19468 with stazon.
step 2: spray some water and sprinkle some Brusho (colour: camboge) and colour with a marker some of the details inside the clockface with aprox. the same colour. Put aside for a while
step 3: take some music paper, glue a wire on it and cover it again with music paper, draw a feather shape on it and cut out, Cut some notches all around the feather. Do the same with the second one. Then spray some water and sprinkel green Bistre, dry with a heattool, spray some water again and sprinkle some Brusho. Dry with a heattool.
step 4: stamp the large bird flying 19001 on a seperate piece of paper and cut out. Colour with Lyra Crayons. Then cover the whole bird with Versamark and Ultra high gloss clear embossingpowder. heatset it, cover again with Versamark and embossing powder and heatset again.
step 5: make some faux stitches on the left hand side of the card with a black fineliner.
step 6: Glue the feathers onto the card with magical tape and then glue the bird on top of the lowest feather. Take some string and tie a knot on the ends of the wire.

Hope you like it and gives you inspiration. Making those feathers is so much fun!

Warmly Hermine
