Fabulous Feathers

Oooh have you seen the challenge over at Moxie fab?   It is to create something with feathers, this tickled me into action! Details of the challenge can be found here, I also wanted to combine this with the Casual Friday, Image, Sentiment and Pattern Challenge here.


















The bird has been cut using a Cricut and the Home Decor cartridge (I chopped off his tail so that I could use feathers - I promise he didn't feel a thing!)  I then stamped the bird with 'inspiring' 40-113 wood background, coloured his legs, beak and a small wing with Copics.  Fly fishing feathers (thanks for these Sue) were glued to his tail and wing and a goggly eye put in place.

The Grass was stamped using  'Sweet home' 40-054 and cut out.  The clouds are from an Amuse die and the Sentiment is from 'Spring Day' 30-099.

Thanks for visiting me and for your lovely comments, they really make my day.

Hugs Cathy

This had me chuckling - love the effect of that eye & the super feathery tail & wing. Those realistically striped legs are rather fun wading through the grass stalks.
