Thought I'd squeeze this card in the middle of what's going to be a very busy week - card wise - for me.
In hindsight I see all kinds of things I wish I'd done different with this card - but what's done is done and it is what it is. I recently purchased some small feather dies and had to play around with them a little so smushed out some distress inks on my craft mat, misted them down a little with water, and then ran the feathers through it. I originally had three small feathers on here and it just looked funny - then had two small ones and that looked a little weird too......so ended up with one big and two little. I didn't want them to take away from the image too much and to just add some color. The big metal brad is from SU I believe and it reminded me of a battle shield like the Indians used to carry at times. Did you know that they were mostly made from buffalo neck!!! This one, however, is nothing but metal since I didn't have a buffalo handy so Jim could whip up one for me!! LOL! The image - from Mark's Finest Papers - is called Bold and Free. This was stamped in Momento and then I did some doodling around the sides (and may have gotten a little carried away with that)!
I'll enter this at Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge (Metal) and at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).
