Feathery Inky Splats...

...oohhooo, I have been a-playing again with my delish new stamps from Darkroom Door.  To see the new releases CLICK HERE... I warn you, they are all gorgeous... and I neeeeds them all!  Anyways, today I have been playing with the new Essentials Feathers stamp set... feathers? Oh lallaaaa... feathers!!!  There are five different designs and they are all fab.  I made a little greeting card with one of them...



Actually, I tell the truth, I was looking at the Feathers and was wondering what I could do with it... and then I remembered I have the Pen Nibs Eclectic stamp set... oh ho!  Pen nib, on a feather = quillHurrah!  And then I remembered I also have the Paint Splats Essentials set too.   *told you the other day I am dead lucky didn't I?*  The feather was stamped with Wendy's Archivals in Watering Can, Hydrangea and Cornflower.  The nib was inked in Versafine and then I used Ranger's Queen's Gold embossing powder to make it a bit metallic... then colouring the white bits with Vintage Photo DI so it toned in.  Now I needed something for the quill to be doing...



Spying the large Beauty Quote stamp I quickly nabbed it and inked with Jet Black Archival, stamping onto cream card and then adding some little splats from the Paint Splats set... then inking around the card using Antique Linen, Faded Jeans and Gathered Twigs DI's... popping the feather onto 3d foam was the finishing touch!



Don't forget you can see all the amazing creations my teamies have been making with the new stamps HERE... take a hob nob and a cuppa with you though, you might be some time!  And of course, you can view all Darkroom Door deliciousness HERE.   That's all from me for today... am off to get myself all packed up for me trip to Harrogate this weekend.  Thanks for looking... TTFN

One of the best things about having my craft store in Australia is that I get to stock a lot of Darkroom Door stamps and I must use them for samples. Lucky me! I am adoring the feathers too. All the recent parcels have been going out with lots of bold feathers stamped all over them.
I love what you have done...it's super.
