Fluffing up my Krafty Feathers

Morning all.  Time for a new challenge at Cardz4galz. Amy wants us to use Kraft paper or card on our projects.  I have some pretty kraft paper with metallic designs on it so it was the obvious thing to go for.  I chose a lovely blue/green feather pattern as I have a feather die that I bought ages ago and then couldn't think what to do with it.  

I cut the feathers and inked them with distress inks (peeled paint, salty ocean, peacock feathers and a swipe of fossilized amber).  I actually hate this photo as you can't see how good the feathers look.  They are a bit single coloured in the image but they look fabulous in real life. They needed a little something so I added the amber coloured gems to the middle.  I'm glad I took the plunge with the feather die.  I've been a bit daunted by it before.  Now I know it can look this good I'll have another go.

Please pop over and join in the fun.

Thanks for reading.
