My Time to Craft DT Challenge #338 Feathers.

Evening, all! It's time for new challenge at My Time to Craft and we have an unusual and lovely theme - Feathers. So you can use feathers on your creation, or birds - or both if you so desire!

I received some feathers in a gorgeous Crafteezee kit from Noor! Design UK. Each monthly kit has a different theme, the feathers came with an Art Deco set, so I decided to make a couple of Art Deco-type cards.

Yes, TWO cards! I made them both at the same time. I cut gold and black card with a MFT Die-namics Chunky Chevrons cover-up Die and glued the frames onto my card bases. Then I inlaid the black chevrons into the gold frame, and vice-versa. The sentiment is from an ancient wood-mounted die, and I used a stamp-a-majig to make sure it was straight on a scrap of black card, then embossed in gold. I cut back the front of the card and glued the sentiments on the back.

Then I added the feathers, and also two fabulous ornaments, also from the Noor! Shop.

I'm so pleased with these cards! They came out exactly as I imagined them!

Go and see the fab creations my teamies have made for some gorgeous inspiration!

Thanks for looking - and Happy Year of the Rooster!

Indeed the design looks very Art Deco. Love the dramatic colors with these feathers (something I never know how to use well!). I like the way you've reversed the chevron patterns on the 2nd card too. Clever! TFS & Hugs.
