A Feather for Happy Little Stampers

I'm a little late with this announcement.

Somehow the days got away from me.

So maybe it's not news to you.

But I'm excited to announce that

I am now on the

I'll be designing for the CAS team
and I couldn't be more excited!

If you haven't been to the
site, do go take a look.

There are 2 challenges each month (sketch and CAS).  

Next month a Christmas Card Challenge will be added.

The challenges last a month so there's lots of time to participate.

There are also lots of wonderful tutorials and a forum to discuss topics of interest at this site.

It's a free site with lots of information and inspiration.

This month's CAS challenge is

A friend recently gave me some Color Wash Sprays.

This challenge gave me the excuse to pull them out.

I've got to admit, I was a bit hesitant.

They are kind of messy, but not too bad.

I sprayed a scrap piece of watercolor paper.
(I didn't want to waste some good stuff if it didn't work out.)

I had this wonderful feather stamp that was a recent gift from a dear friend.
Thanks again, MH!

It seemed that it was a perfect fit for this sprayed paper.

What do you think?


Lots going on this week so I've gotta run.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bobby said...

Congratulations on being a Happy Little Stamper, Bonnie. Your feather is lovely all sprayed up like that. Just to let you know I read every word of your blog, it's feather "die" you received, not a stamp. ;)

Bożena Adamusińska said...

Hello Bonnie,
I am a follower of your blog and I am delighted with your creativity. I love your cards. I also really glad that we're in the DT HLS :-)))

Pat said...

Wow what a beautifully sprayed feather Bonnie, and that Tattered Lace die is so pretty. I love the stitched mat and the white with just the tiniest bit of turquoise card showing behind works so well. I love the complementary stitched edge to the base card too. x

Pat said...

I'm sorry Bonnie but I meant to say congratulations for being chosen for the Happy Little Stampers design team and I look forward to seeing your take on the challenges. x

Greta said...
