Gold leaf feathers

I am popping in today to share a card.

As I said in my previous post, I was so inspired by the pins from Caths pintrest boards, I had a bunch of cards going at the same time.  With this one, I stamped the background with a Hero Arts stamp (swiss dots) using a glue pad and then rubbed the sheet of gold leaf over it. I don't think the glue pad is sticky enough in places so, some of it rubbed off, thus creating a more vintage, rusty look.  (I liked it anyway). I die cut the Wplus9 feathers from wood veneer paper. For the back one I pressed the end into the glue pad and rubbed the gold leaf on to it, and for the front one I stamped it using the same technique I described above. 
The sentiment strip was made using a coral scalloped base, and onto that I glued a strip of double sided tape that I attached rows of twine to. On top of that I added a strip of rustic cream card stock that I stamped my sentiment on to and added some distressing with vintage photo :) I finished it all of with some twine and a button.

Anyway... that's all from me folks. I will try and post a few more cards in the coming days :)

Later maters
Tasha :)
