My card today is bumpy and downy. I used the Pop Rectangles Stencil and Black Embossing Paste on a monoprint page. Once dry I placed the stencil back over the embossing paste and dabbed Pink Poppy and Kiwi Metallic FX.


The background paper is done using the Creative Palette Rectangles plate and Radiant Neon Refill Ink. Here is a video with Fran showing us how to create this type of print.


I stamped Spotted Feather and Quill in black ink and quickly sprinkled Crystal Embossing Powder over it, tapped off the excess and heat set. Each were hand trimmed and adhered with 3D Foam Squares. I repeated the process with the Penned Birthday sentiment.


The last bit of texture is creating the downy part of the feather. I'm not an expert in feathers so adding this is probably not a real attribute, but our hop is all about making texture so I decided that it was okay. I used some liquid glue and drew lines similar to the ones in the stamped image and then sprinkled Snow White Fun Flock over it, sometimes I added more glue to fill in and then repeated with the Fun Flock.

Thank you for stopping by and now it's time to check out more projects.

Here are the designer's sharing the projects today —
