Vintage Feathers

SFeathers are really trendy right now.  I'd like to share the paper feathers that I made with the 18th century Proclamation stamp from The Rubber Cafe.

 
The feathers were really easy to create.  Draw or trace a rough outline of a feather.  Stamp the 18th Century Proclamation with Distress inks of your choice.  Add a few ink spots for a fun color variation.  Attach a piece of twine down the base to create a spine with your Scrap Happy Glue and make cuts with your scissors to add realism.
 
You can add your feathers to any project.  Here I added one to an authentic vintage postcard to create a unique greeting card.  Notice the beautiful faux-wood background.  I created that with the Wood Grain stamp.  I love that it can stamped in any color to coordinate with any project!
 
 
Happy Stamping!
