Hi! Thanks for joining me today. This is the challenge that sparked my creativity yesterday:

A while ago, I was in the dollar store and had picked up a package of assorted coloured feathers. They had stayed in their package for several months, until yesterday, when I had an inspiration of something I could do with them.
It wasn’t the plan to use them, the feathers, I was working on a card for the new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches and once I was done with the card, I was onto another one. The card for the challenge was made using discontinued paper from Stampin’ Up! I had liked the corset images and had decided to use one of the corsets as a focal point for the card.
This is the card for the challenge:
From there, another card with more of a burleque feel to it had emerged in my mind and I was playing with that when the feathers caught my eye — after all, when you think of burlesque, do you not think of old saloons, corsets, and feather boas?
This is what I created:
I may colour in parts of the corset too.. it almost feels like it’s in too much contrast to the rest of the card. Decisions, decisions!!
And then.. not leaving well enough alone, I had to add some feathers to my first creation. They’re not affixed as I’m still playing with the idea and not sure if the white and turquoise feather should be included. What do you think? Was is finished without the feathers or should some stay? I just can’t decide.
Looks like it will be another quiet day at home. It’s already 10 AM and everybody is still sleeping (except for me.) I’m going to enjoy it though.. Monday and the rest of the week will come soon enough! lol
Till next time..
