Birds of a Different Feather

While blog hopping, I was inspired by my creative friend Patti to step out and find inspiration elsewhere. I found this picture of a quilt in a book and choose the bird as my inspiration piece.

I used Stampin' Ups slit punch to make the feathers. (Putsy, I know. I don't mind putsy if I am only making one.) I changed the colors of the bird, drew the body and the wings onto white cardstock and cut the pieces out. Starting at the bottom of the bird's body, I glued alternating rows of color, slightly overlapping, as I made my way up to the top of the bird. I did the same with the wings of the bird. Then I glued the pieces of the bird onto a light blue background, layered it onto an embossed piece of white cardstock and finished it off with a polka dot bow. Thanks for the inspiration Patti. Thanks to Judy, also. (Two of my creative, stamping friends.) Thanks for stopping by.


  1. WOW! That must have taken you forever, but it totally paid off! great job!!! :D

  2. Janice, that's so pretty! I'm not sure I would have ever thought to make the bird's feathers like that. I'm glad you were inspired by my challenge. You did a beautiful job.

  3. Oh my gosh! this is a work of art! I hope you will frame it. What an outstanding piece of art.

    Yes! Judy surely did unleash some inspiration! when she posed her challenge : ) I'm so glad you played along.
