PTI Create Along With Us: April 2016

This month's release at Papertrey Ink was fabulous and so we're all the projects done by the Design Team showcasing these goodies. Several of these beauties are shown on Nichole Heady's blog. Which one do I choose as my inspiration? This time I went with one of Kay's from her Release In Review post.Trust me when I say you can't replicate anything Kay does because she is one awesome crafty lady, but I gave it my best shot anyway. She used butterflies, and I used feathers with watercoloring, smooshing and splattering. Oops, forgot to add sequins! Will do next time. 😀





After stamping the largest feather using VersaFine Onyx ink, I heat embossed with clear powder. The smaller two feathers are stamped in Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise with black Sharpie lines and Wink of Stella Shimmer. Since sympathy cards can be so challenging when needed, I like to have a few in my stash. This is one more at the ready.



Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White and Canson Watercolor Paper
Ink: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest and VersaFine Onyx
Stamps: What The Doodle: Feather and Hero Arts Prayers
Dies: What The Doodle: Feather and Hero Arts Prayers
Other: Clear Embossing Powder, Black Sharpie, Wink of Stella Shimmer, SU  Dimensionals, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Water Brush

RE: your question about sewing on Vellum.
No, I just use the regular needle that was on my sewing machine!
