Party Plumage

Stamps, B&T paper - CTMH's Felicity stamp & paper set
Inks - CTMH & Tim Holtz Distressing Inks (still pretty inept with them...but trying)
Pearl Gem - Hero Arts
Koh-I-Noor Woodless Coloured Pencils do you like it? It's actually a flourish that, with a bit of masking, turned into the best Party Plumage that any bird could imagine!! I was happy with the inks on everything EXCEPT the flourish, I wanted the plumage to be very rich-looking and before I "filled-in" with the Koh-I-Noors, the flourish was looking fairly flat. I don't often remember about using the colored pencils to lay another dimension of color on already-applied ink. I'd say I'd make a note of it on a Post-It, but it would be lost with all of the other absolute sea of Post-It notes, various sizes and colors of course - for variety!!

As a side note: have any of you seen the bloggers that have taken one word to embrace for 2010? Ok, I know it has deeper meaning than that but I can't remember what the whole background was....but I liked the idea - in a casual need to get militant over something that should be kind of fun and help you focus - right?? So, I found a was difficult to zero in on just one word ('cause there's so many good ones out there) and I've decided to "do" something with it.....yesssss, something stamp-related. Of course I haven't actually DONE it yet but I'm PLANNING to - hey, maybe I'll go by the Chinese New Year instead....that gives me a little more time..........YIKES, gotta run!!!
