Thank you...

If you are looking for my CASology Week-61 Guest Design post, please click HERE...

Today, I sat down with  a decision to create a card for CAS-ual Friday's CFC114 Challenge- BACK TO SCHOOL. I was not sure what will I make, then the idea of schools using a quill and ink for writing in the ancient times hit me and I remember how my talented friend Tasneem, created her own feather. So, I took the inspiration from her brilliant creation, HERE and made my card... I was also inspired by the colors at Runway Inspired challenge #43 - Lela Rose, so I used there colors in my card.
To make this, I hand drew my quill, cut it out colored it with inks (Memento Dew drop dye inks) and then created fringes. I did a bit different from Tasneem here, I cut this out first and colored later, just to achieve different colors on same feather perfectly :) Then I embossed some vertical score lines (using Martha Stewart score board) on my card, suck the quill will glue dots and hand wrote the sentiment using my calligraphy marker ( which was picked for the obvious reasons). That was easy :)

Since, I have used marker and embossing, I will play it for Addicted to stamps #62 - Make your mark! and Simon Say's stamp Wednesday Challenge - Emboss it

The challenges are -
1. CAS-ual Friday's CFC114 Challenge- BACK TO SCHOOL
2. Runway Inspired challenge #43 - Lela Rose
3. Addicted to stamps #62 - MAKE YOUR MARK ! 

4. Simon Say's stamp Wednesday Challenge - EMBOSS IT

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

  19. Really great idea to cut the feather first, so that the ink will soak into the edges and get that darker color ... so smart! I went back to take another look at the quill you drew, man is that good!! Wonderful, wonderful card, Dee!! So glad to see you at CAS-ual Fridays again : )
