Feathered Lady

My mum loves anything from Art Deco, to Charleston girls. So I thought I would make this card for her. The stamped image in unknown I'm afraid as I bought it from Ebay and it was unmounted and untitled. But it's fab and I love it. The image is a woman wearing a feathered stole or boa, something like that, or the feathers are attached to her dress, it's hard to tell, but I always cut the image and thread different coloured feathers through where the 'stole' should be. I usually coordinate them with whichever colour I decide to colour the dress. I added a little glitter to the bottom of the dress to add a little 'glamour' and a satin printed ribbon. The printed phrase in the bottom right of the card says: 'Mother. The woman who cradled you as an infant, held your hand as a child, and as an adult, she let you go.'

Happy Mother's Day, Mummy

I also made one of these cards for her birthday in September (and it's still up on display with all of her porcelain figurines), slightly different lady of course, and she loved it, so I'm hoping she'll like this one too.

I'm sure she'll love it. I've still got the purple feathers you gave me. MUST use them soon!

Well now you should have the inspiration, can't wait to see what you make. Add a note to your inspiration jar, "Make a card using feathers!"

I got them in Hobbycraft. But I'm sure you'll be able to get them in any craft shop. I like Hobbycraft as they do such a large variety of colours...
