The Feather die from Die-Versions is a good size, almost 5 1/2" long. When I saw it, I was reminded of how people used to write with feathers, called a quill pen. That's how this card came about.
I have an old clear stamp of a post card (from OTC stamps) and an ink bottle (by Just For Fun stamps) and thought these would be perfect for my die. After die cutting the feather from white cardstock, I colored the feathers portion with Pink Champagne Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers and "dipped" the end in Starry Sky Sparkle marker. The ink bottle was heat embossed with Clear embossing powder and then colored with the Sparkle markers. Parts of the post card were also colored with the Sparkle markers.
My message was created using DV Sweet Wordlets (Thinking of You, the "&" from Mr. & Mrs., and Miss You). These were all colored with more Starry Sky Sparkle marker. Writing back then was so elegant, so I could easily image someone who used a quill pen would also write beautifully.
