My heart is always with you

Second post for today! I made another card for Moxie Fab World - The Fascination with Feathers Challenge. I made my own feather and made a vintage card.

My Heart card

Cardstock: Kraft and Scarlet Jewel from PTI
Stamps: Love Live Here and Text background stamps from PTI and Feathers and flourishes from Hero Arts
Inks: Archival Black Ink, Frayed Burlap distress ink and Colourbox chalk ink.
Accessories: pattern papers from stash, skewers, sponging tool,lace, paper rose from Kaisercraft. Flourish die from Hero Arts.

I drew a rough sketch of a feather on couple of pattern papers, then stamped some text on it, cut the sketches out. Then scored through the middle. Adhered skewer at the scored middle of the feather piece and then adhere the other piece on the top. Then randomly cut "V" shape to give it a real feather look. Finally inked the edges. Ta da there is a feather :)

It has been a long time since I made a layered card using embellishments. Love it when it is a vintage card. Hope you like it :)

Thanks for visiting :)
