Yesterday, we finished week two of band camp. When we arrived home, my daughter had a paper that needed a final look through and I felt I needed to create something. But, I wasn’t feeling inspired. I think because I’d been a bit busy this week and hadn’t sneaked in small bits of creating. Since my pre-order had arrived, I walked over to my new things and at random pulled out a stamp set. It was Four Feathers and I was drawing a blank. I laid it on the table and opened it up. My daughter looked over and said,” This one and this one remind me of the night sky.” It was as simple as that — I was off and running.
Here’s what I created:
I started by stamping in Night of Navy on Crushed Curry. Four Feathers (#135053) has a set of coordinating framelits (#135852) – yea! Of course, I used them to cut out the feathers. At this point I was still pondering my daughter’s night sky comment.
I pulled out Gorgeous Grunge and using the Versamark and the small ink spatter created a small trail of “stars” diagonally across the Night of Navy card base. This trail was heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.
At this point, I pulled out some Gold Baker’s Twine and created a little sculptural element with it. If you’ve not tried this yet, check it out here.
After arranging my feathers on the card using a combination of Multipurpose Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added a trio of loose Gold sequins using Glue Dots.
While I’m not sure that I managed my daughter’s vision of the night sky, I like the way it turned out. And even better, I’m feeling ready to create something else.
