Gold Feathers

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC699), we are headed to At Home. They have a ton of lovely things & I was drawn to THIS picture. 

The picture also made me think of some gold tipped white feathers I saw in a craft store a couple of years ago. For the first couple I did, I stamped, gold embossed, fussy cut then swiped the gold ink across the tips & dipped them in the gold powder. They didn’t look quite right to me. So on the rest, after I cut them out, I cut little notches in the tips before inking & dipping. I think that made all the difference. On the white bg, I gold embossed the greeting &  used the Splatter Bg just in some areas. I had these mirror gold square frames left from another project,  so I used them to add a little interest.

Here’s the inside…everything was gold embossed, as well, & I added a couple of unused feathers from the front.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
