Fur and Feathers?

Hi, hello and a very warm welcome, Gosh what a night, we didn't finish watching the Olympic closing ceremony until 1am, loved it!  Did you watch? I hope you liked it, it was really quite British!

Today I've made a card for LIM 80 and this week Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us to make a one layer card with fur or feathers. Lots of opportunities with this one:0)
My card is of the feathered kind..............
 I kiss stamped the heron with another stamp to get some detail on him. Then masked  and inked through a mask and removed the mask to ink again
I used
Katzelkraft Stamp
Impression Obsession  Stamp 
Thank you for looking in, Gay xxx

Over at the Craft Barn there is a great new challenge, click HERE to check it out! Who wouldn't want £20 to help with new crafting goodies?
