Pink Feathers & Sassy Britches!

Andrea's Savvy challenge  is a photo inspiration this time around, with gorgeous pink feathers...and looking through my paper pads I found this great dark pink feather patterned paper....and then got sassy with it!


Supplies: papers from Prima; clip art from Crafty Secrets; sentiment from Dylusions; Versamark & black detail EP; Martha Stewart clay rose; paper smooches twine

To get the curly ends on my bow, I wound the twine around a pencil & heated it with my heat gun....which is great unless you heat it too long & melt the varnish on the pencil. You'll notice a super-curly bit there, which I'm pretty sure is due to the words it heard while the varnish was bubbling & I was trying to not burn the house down. 

Note: I always have my sassy britches on. You've been warned.

No, girl that card is all me! I love it! I want that card and the sentiment!!! Yay for curly twine. I use just plain old school glue around a paint brush. You could try heating it around a paint brush...maybe no varnish to bubble up just melted plastic! Ha!
