Birds Of A Feather

This is going to be one of my favorites, I love the color combination on the feathers.  They remind me of a chickadee feather I found recently.  I think I would have done some different positioning on them but I still love it.

I used the technique on Papertrey Ink's, #290 Make It Monday Challenge shown by Betsy Veldman where she combines stenciling and masking. Her direction is so nice and clear.  I love her videos.  I basically just used a small rectangle negative space diecut as a stencil and then die cut a mask of the two feathers from some copy paper and put some temporary adhesive on the back of them to adhere them to the little rectangular area- and then went to work blending some distress.  Next I stamped the feathers with frayed burlap and lastly with some black soot.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment. Supplies are listed below.

Materials Used:
  • Stamps:  Papertrey Ink, Feather Finery
  • Distress Ink: Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Frayed Burlap, Black Soot
  • Rectangle Die (Not sure of the company)
  • Paper, 110 lb.
  • Versamagic Black Onyx Ink for the sentiment
