Feather Card Revisited and More

I have returned with a slightly improved card from my early morning creativity session and an additional one that I am very happy with.  Actually I am happy now with the first one also.

So beginning with my first feather card....that yellow card base is really a nice green but it is coming across rather a nasty yellow.  IRL it's a nice color combo.  The additions are the skinny little shafts that are also from the feather die.  This is the shaft of the arrow.  Because I cut out so many complete feather dies (I have not separated the individual dies) I ended up with a dozen or more of these.  I was about to toss them when I realized they would enhance the feathers.  So I am now happy with this card too.

Next I needed to make an OCAM for my Paper Artists Online group.  This is one of those cards that just came together in a flash.  My favorite part is the "shadow" of the large feather on the sentiment.  I used the inside of the die cut as a stencil.  I am very pleased with it and hope the recipient will be also.  I am adding some separate feathers to her card for her to play with.


  1. Wow...what great cards...and a fun die.....feathers seem to be so "in" right now....I think you have "enabled" me to get a die...thanks...I!!

  2. Love the die cut feathers and both cards are wonderful Farley!

  3. Oh, gosh, Farley, these feather cards are fabulous. I can't wait to get my hands on those dies. Although my cards will be poor imitations of yours, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

    Seriously, L.O.V.E.

  4. I love that 2nd card, Farley! did you use thin stencil tape to make the pink blocks, or did you ink an acrylic block and stamp with that to make squares?
