Birthday feathers

Trying to keep this one simple with bold colours. Sometimes we need more encouragement even on our special day!

Despite the fact it’s noon here, I can’t get the Catherine Pooler Tutti Frutti colour to photograph as vibrant as it is in real life: it’s a fabulous bright orange. I also used Peacock Feathers distress ink and Colorbox brown dye ink on feathers from L’Aquarelle stamped in memento black and fussy cut. Tried handlettering the sentiment but I’m not quite there yet… so it’s computer-generated with Kimberley Geswein‘s beautiful fonts.

This is inspired by All the Little Things #86 with the fabulous feathers in the picture.


Plus Kim’s sketch FMS338 from Freshly Made Sketches – and I knew it would have to be feathers as soon as I saw, it!

Also CAS on Friday’s Birthday challenge #133


Watch the feathers float
Carrying your cares away
Leaving you sweet peace.
