Good morning everyone. Hope you are all being good and feeling well.
Happy smiles from me, got a couple of days off work, hurrah !!! Got some jobs need doing around the house, no hurrah !!!
As usual, big thanks for your lovely comments on my two Peace cards. I've been experimenting with something else different with the die so watch this Pond!!!
It has been mega busy recently and with another colleague having leave soon and another moving to another department its going to be manic, especially on the run up to the C word! if there was ever a time for a sunkissed beach, lapping waves and a pina colada with brolly, its now lol !!!
Now, today's card is one I have held back as our John showed one using this mask a little while ago. We both bought it from the recent craft show and I wasn't about to show mine too close to his lol !!! On that note, big congrats to my buddy for his well deserved call up to CEDT. May God bless you and all who craft with you !!!
Its quite a simple card using different shades of mica to colour the feathers.
You can just about see the sheen on this pic. I basically embossed the card with the mask, then Versamarked through the mask. I then sprinkled teal, lilac and blue mica in various spots over the feathers, then brushed the mica over the card. This gives a nice graduated colour.

A little tip for when stamping with distress inks. I find that the image quality when stamping with these can be hit and miss so I apply Versamark to the stamp first. Then I apply the distress ink on top and I find that you get much crisper images/lettering. Sorry if that's a grannys sucking eggs thing that you all knew already.
Just a couple of messages. . . . . . . .
Kate and Karen, I think Krylon pens are American and they can be difficult to get hold of but I got mine from Inkylicious. Sam, they are great pens, aren't they?
Hello to Carol (inkyfingers) and Marci. Thank you so much for your visits and comments.
