Ruffle your feathers....

This is one of my pieces for the Scrolls Work stamps design team.
I stamped Small ruffled feathers (#4074) on to a piece of fibre paper with black archival ink and coloured in with promarkers very lightly then highlighted with sakura glitter pen.
I glued this on to a domino with a glue stick and cut round with a craft knife. I sanded the edges with an emery board then inked with black acrhival ink.
I pressed it down in my versamark ink pad then coated in utee and heated. While hot I sprinkled on more utee and heated again and repeated this until I had a nice thick glaze.
While hot I pressed in the stamp and left to cool.
When cooled I removed the stamp then heated the face area until it was smooth again.
Next I coloured a piece of grunge paper with vive decor inka gold in platinum then stamped in the black ink with Wings -2 (#2502).
I pressed this in to the versamark and coated in utee giving it two coats.
Again while hot I pressed the stamp in to the utee to create texture.
When cold I craked the glaze by getly bending then glued the wings on to the back of the domino with Crafters pick - The Ultimate glue from Happy Daze.

Next I bent a flat filigree charm gently against the bottom of the domino nad glue on. When dry I added charms and beads.

lastly I added a glue on bail ready to hang on a chain or even on a keyring or bag charm.

Hope you like it,
