Feathers not fur.




I often wonder why I like to make easel cards for a change and then have all the hassle of getting a decent photo.    This is the card I made for our new Challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow which is, ' Feathers and Fur',  I hope you like it. We would like to see  animals or birds on the project, I chose to go with the feathered option.  Our style is vintage / shabby chic , please pop over and see what we have all been making.



I have added a couple of extra photos, one when the card is closed  and one of the stopper bar.
I used  Debbie Moore's  'Shabby Chic-Vintage Birds'  CD  for the papers and images. A couple of layers of decoupage to add some depth to the bird and flower. The trusty vintage photo distress ink  was used for extra shading.  There is a touch of glitter on the flowers tips.

I would like to say hello to my new followers, thank you for joining me on my crafty journey.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I really appreciate your comments.
