Feathers!

Hi Everyone, I have a fun card up over at The Twinery today.  I actually made feathers from some of our Solid Twines!  It took me a long time to jump on the feather bandwagon...but now I think I'm here to stay!  Take a peek:
 

These look hard, but they're really pretty easy to make...just takes some time.  I started by wrapping a piece of fabric covered floral wire with the twine, gluing both ends to secure. (I used some Mandarin, Marigold and Maraschino)  I then tied 3" pieces of twine, starting about 2" from the bottom...all the way to the top.  Once that's done, you spray the feather with fabric stiffener, and play with it until it's shaped like a feather.  Just let it dry on a piece of wax paper and done!  To see a complete tutorial...you can go here.

I used some neutral papers from Studio Calico for the background...I really wanted the feathers to stand out.  A few sequins and a wooden heart and done!  This card is serving double duty as well... we started a new "Grateful for You" Issue over at Paper Issues yesterday...link up your projects to win a $20 PI Gift Card!!!  Good for anything in the store, even some fab Twinery Twine! That's it for today...thanks for stopping by!
