Feathers

My AJ page today is F for Feathers joining in at The Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge


My main chosen stamp was from the  A little Bit Sketchy collection from Sheena Douglass - Falling Feathers.
I gathered some paints and inks together, Pebeo Iridescent Gold was brushed directly onto the stamps and randomly stamped, this paint is gorgeously iridescent but unfortunately not showing very well in photo.
I also used up some Spectrum Noir inks which had dried in the palette I sprayed with water and applied to the stamps these were very wet and soaked into the water colour paper giving a lovely washed look, lastly I used Memento ink pad London Fog, a nice light grey colour.
Bird stamp is Tim Holtz and stamped with spectrum noir inks spritzed with water.
A Grungeboard "F" was painted with the gold paint and stamped over in memento grey with the small feather stamp.


Thanks for looking, 'till next time
