A little doodling...

Wasn't quite sure whether I would get back in my craft room this weekend as we have been out a lot. But I managed to squeeze in a bit of time today before I head off out again later on.

I simply sketched some feathers using a Faber Castell pencil onto SU's Not Quite Navy cardstock. These pencils look fantastic on dark card.


Here it is in it's infancy. Lightly sketched and the sentiment positioned and stamped so that I can build on my drawing.


I then gradually added more strokes to each feather until I was happy with the overall result.


Finally, I added the magic ingredient...Glamour Dust. It looks stunning on top of these pencils. To compliment the navy card I've used Papertrey's Antique Linen card for the background and matching ribbon.


Well I managed to get my final lie-in this morning and it was heavenly. Hope you managed to get one too!

those feathers look so realistic and soft and fluffy Sarita and with the addition of the glamour dust they immediately become wonderfully classy and Christmassy.

Lovely, you make it seem so simple! I hate to think what mine would look like if I were to try to sketch some feathers! I assure you it would not be flowing and graceful like yours!
