Feathers & Lace. Sort of!!!

I've joined over at STAMPLORATIONS monthly challenge, which is to use
STAMPING & DISTRESSING.
I got my Vintage on - distressing always says that to me!
And I FUSSY CUT [shock, horror!!!]. As you can see,
I've distressed all the paper edges & sand papered the image too.
I've stamped the butterfly and little birds along with the sentiment...there is heaps
of bg stamping [& heat embossing with the harlequin pink shapes, too].
I even stamped & fussy cut some of the little butterflies:
 You can see the bg and the butterflies a bit better here! I really enjoyed
making this card:)
Meanwhile, the...
This month it's to use the initials of FAWN on your project.
I chose to do a card:
F = feathers... [thank you Mitra for the stencil!] ... A & W for Arrows created with
washi tape....N = numbers..... which I covered with Glossy Accents:
Stamped and fussy cut numbers, at that. They do look nice with
that sheen, I reckon.
The bg is heavily influenced by this video I watched by Audrey Blaizot.
She's French & since I'm trying to improve my 'school girl' skills,
I quite like it as she chatters on & I can pretend to understand!
And I do enjoy using up some of our local
feathers!!!
Thanks for checking these cards out & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  2. Do you know what? I just swiped off everything that I'd written on my bucket list and replaced it with one thing: Become Lizzy Hill. A girl can dream right?! That first card - incredible. SO many layers of perfection and that vintage lady looks awesome with those butterflies. I'm so excited to see you playing along with STAMPlorations, too! And your deer and fawn card? I love feathers on cards and this one is no exception. The different patterns look fab-o together.
