I'm back again this week for another CASology challenge. This week's cue is Glimmer.

When I went into the craftroom tonight, I wasn't necessarily setting out to make a card for this challenge just yet, but it just kind of came together. It started like this...

I asked my husband for a "reasonable" challenge. I said reasonable because some of his challenges are a bit out of the box. Anyway, he decided to take it easy-ish on me and said, text your friend- Ask her what colour her shirt is and ask her what the first colour she sees is. So I did. My friend was wearing a white shirt and gave me gold with red pop as the colour. When she sent me her OOTD she had a gold feather necklace on and a red belt. So suddenly, I was thinking Fanciful Feathers!

And how perfect would they be in red, with just a bit of gold ink on the edges! So that's what I did!

I die cut a stitched rectangle. I used the MISTI to stamp the feathers in Pure Poppy first, and then I added Gold pigment ink over top to add that gentle gold glimmer. I stamped the greeting in Versamark and heat embossed it in gold. The final step was using foam tape to pop up the image layer.

I was going to leave a link to Fanciful Feathers, by WPlus9, but apparently I've been living under a rock and it's not available anymore! Even though I own the set, I'm a little sad. It's a classic.
