Faux Feathers

I don't do crafts...other than stamping, painting, drawing, sewing, and collage. Hmmm...guess I am a crafter, huh? Nevertheless, I had no feathers in the house. (Oh, that's right. A few years ago I made a feather Christmas tree!)

Nevertheless, I didn't have any for the Joan's Garden Challenge...a vintage card with a stamped background, the colors olive and tan plus an accent color, and feathers. 
Then I had a brainstorm! And made my own feathers. 

I used white brads, and sanded and inked them. I used lots of  Crafty Secrets stamps, a Martha Stewart punch to make a vellum lace band, 

and 3 faux feathers. My inks are Tim Holtz Distress. I love distressing.
