Day 2 of 16

Oh yes I'm counting all 3 week-ends, makes a 16 day long break.

Yesterday was a real unwind day, without the need to get everything done over a week-end I just went with the flow.

This card shows off two of my new Lost Coast Designs from Make the Day Special.   Their's is a great way to get US made rubber over here, I learnt about them first when they were the sponsors at Less is More.    Ideal then to use them for a Less is More challenge.

The theme this week is One Layer, off the edge.   The gorgeous dramatic feathers stamped first in Archival ink, black and then coated with WOW fine detail gold powder.   Archival ink might not be the best for embossing but I love the slightly shabby result, perfect for the feathers.   A mask covered the image and the Wish, Welcome, Grow, Believe stamp used again with the Archival ink.   Those feathers cried out for colour so Mown Lawn, Salty Ocean, & Peacock Feathers applied over the area with, you guessed it my ink dusters, the whole then polished to bring the ep back up.

I'm also sharing this with
Inkspirational - Clean and Simple
Moo-Mania, who now are open to all formats - Use Feathers

Well it is still overcast here, which might mean not to many day trippers so might be a day to visit the coast.   The Humber Estuary is lined with interesting nooks and undeveloped areas.
