Inspired by #32

Thanks for all the well-wishes for my allergies - I think, maybe, possibly, that they may be starting to subside. Fingers & toes crossed! I like being able to breathe & use both my eyes...
I have a lot of challenge cards ready this week, and that's what I've got for you today. This card is for the photo inspiration at Inspired By, #32, which is open until Wednesday night. Here's the photo:

So much to draw from this photo - I went with colours (pink and aqua), and the jewelry:
Supplies: stamps from Paper Smooches;
Palette Noir ink;
pink cardstock from stash;
washi tape in aqua & green from We R Memory Keepers;
gem strip from the dollar store;
coloured with Martha Stewart markers;
tail feathers quilled by me
I could not get the colours of the gems to show up, no matter how many photos I took. There are pink, blue, and light green gems, but mostly clear. I love it! And I am soooo loving the washi tape - seriously, it is made of magic. 
See you later on with more!

QUILLED TAIL FEATHERS! LOVE! So pretty! And I see you have succumbed to the washi tape thing. Welcome! :)

Dawn said...

OMGoodness! I am loving your tail feathers!!:) This card is awesome! The quilling, the gems and the washi tape are all fantastic! I have to admit, I couldn't understand why washi tape was so popular, but now I I need to do any more shopping...

Hugs, Dawn

Love it Jessi! That little bird is so cute - you have such a gift for quilling. Sometimes gems photo better if you lay it down.

I'm sorry about the allergies. I'm crossing my fingers and toes for you. I hope they go away. Eyes and breathing are important.

Hi Jessi I have so much to catch up with so forgive me for the short comments...I'm not coping with blogging and the school holidays at all...craftime is almost non existent!!
Love the quilled feathers for your peacock, much nicer than the stamped version :0)
