Pink Feathered Thoughts

Wednesday, May 8, 2013


I had so much fun playing along with Unscripted Sketches last week, that I decided to play this week too!  I am really enjoying those sketches! Don't adjust your screen settings, there really is THAT MUCH pink going on here.  I'm not really a "pink person", but....

There is a challenge going on at the Shopping Our Stash blog for a Mother's Day theme, or pink.  I chose pink!  And it all started with that feather.   The feather originated as a vintage pink silk floral leaf.  I've had it for ages, since there's not often an occasion for a pink leaf.  I trimmed the leaf down and added some cuts and voila!  The leaf turned into a feather!

  3. Michelle - thank you for commenting on my Unscripted Sketch card. Not only have you brightened my day, but you led me to your site and WOW! Stunning - and I think pink is perfect for Mother's Day (and any day...). Glad you kept that leaf/feather - perfect 'special touch' for a special card. Lovely! Have a wonderful Thursday...

  4. oh ♥WOW♥! this is beyond awesome, i'm pretty much *SWOONING* over here! first just at this much pink gorgeousness, all in one place; then for the amazing display of collage skillz as well as mixing vintage and new, product + ephemera, etc; and then TOTALLY for the leaf becoming a feather, not that i wouldn't have loved it as a leaf, but also b/c being a bit of a vintage millinery/floral type... sometimes one has leaves which have seen better days... and it occurs to me that a "feather conversion" could save the day at such times! thanks for the awesome idea AND a full serving of eye candy this morning! ♥♥♥ (& thanks for SHOPPING YOUR STASH with us this week, too!) :)
