Shake Your Tail Feather


Have we got a fun month for you at CASE Study! In honour of Cath Edvalson and all the Moxie Fabulous goodness over the years we are celebrating this awesomeness by CASEing some of the fabulous Moxie Fab inspiration Cath delighted us with! To kick off the month take a little look at this beauty:



Hello fabulous feathers! I took the opportunity to pull out my Birds of a Feather set by Kelly Purkey. I wanted to get the feeling of all that opulent gold and rich colours so I gold heat embossed a feather on to Simon Says Stamp water-colour paper, masked and repeated until I had a fan of feathers. Then I set to with Inktense pencils to try to capture even a tenth of the iridescent colours. To give that extra pop, I dotted glossy accents over the top to catch the light. I sprinkled black sequins from Kelly Purkey (these really have that iridescent green-blue hints), jewels and some platinum stickles. Finally a swirl of fine silver thread grounded a glitter and sentiment strip. The water-colour panel was then mounted on a rich deep blue card base.

Please pop by the CASE Study blog to see how the rest of the team were inspired :) Finally, if you haven’t already there’s still time to enter my giveaway to win some Kelly Purkey washi tape; visit this post and leave a comment by Friday 06 December 11.59pm EST :)
