September SOTM Blog Hop ~ Feel So Blessed

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We have a really great stamp set to feature this month and hope you find lots of inspiration from the hop!
If you've come from Darlys Recker's blog you're on the doing fine. This hop is one big circle and you just keep clicking on the link in each post to continue to the next blog!

For the painted feather I used Archival Black because it's a permanent ink and I wanted to paint without the ink bleeding. I just washed some color onto the watercolor paper. When it was dry I stamped the feather and cut it out. The rest of the card was quick and easy! Hint: The bow was made from the White Burlap ribbon. I cut two strands apart from the ribbon to make the bow and secured with a mini Glue Dot.
