Watercolor Feathers

I am in L-O-V-E with the 'Fine Feathers' stamp set from Stampin' Up. It has been on my list for a long time. A very, very long time and I finally got it.  Less than a week ago I posted the gold embossed feathers and they are seriously gorgeous.

Anyway, the Paper Players had a challenge this week to do one layer cards!! Seriously? Seriously?  That's my SPECIALTY. HA.  Or, I just get too lazy... who knows.
To create this look, I placed all three feather stamps on a block.  I then colored with my markers "willy-nilly". I sprayed the stamps with water using my mister, then plopped those suckers onto the whisper white paper. Let it dry and you'll be amazed.

No, I did not use watercolor paper so if you want more movement, you'll have to use that.

I also doodled... yeah, that's those two borders.  I love to doodle.  Makes me feel 14 again.  All I need now is a bag of penny candy so I can flick them on the ceiling and I'll be right back there. (what?!?)

Oh, that stamp set is "A Dozen Thoughts" - wicked cool stamp set. :)

Have a great day!

Want to do another challenge?  Join me at Catherine and Cathy Create for three challenges a month all due at the end of August.
