More Glitter and Feathers....

Today's' card has been inspired by The Paper Artsy Challenge - Glitter
I have got so much glitter around my study, 
after yesterdays tag that I thought I would keep going....
They have such inspirational blog posts, for many different ways of using glitter...
I was inspired from the introduction post of the glorious feathers 
Messy but a fun way to add glitter to those fabulous real feathers.
Another inspirational post was from Raquel Burillo   (photo below)
and the many ways of applying glitter.
I have used dry glitter rubbed onto double sided tape 
and a line of stickles on the left of the card, which I haven't used in years.
The real feathers have been painted with starlight topaz paint.
Such a glorious colour of Mica, gold, brown and topaz...stunning in real life.

My intention was to paint the middle feather on the card 
and then pull it off gently and use as a sort of stencil/mask....
The feather was having none of it and stuck fast!!!
Who knew the feather would stick so well without glue?
I applied the dry, sand coloured glitter on the left hand feather with wet glue.
Finishing off with a stamped sentiment in gold heat embossing and brown ink.

More glorious glittery mess around my studio.....
I really don't know why I don't use glitter more often, as in real life it is so very pretty.....maybe I'll use the dry glitter sparingly....
but all the other ways of adding glitter I'm in!!!

Thank you for finding time to stop by...
I wanted to say a Big Thank you for all the very kind 
and very generous comments you continue to leave me...

Another Stunning feather result, a Stunning card. I hear techniques used in the 80's and 90's are coming back, with the use of the sticky tape and glitter it is wonderful and works so well updated by you.

This is brilliant, Mac, in every way! I wouldn't know whether to put it on the mantle or show it off by attaching it to my purse! I certainly would never put it in a drawer or keepsake box, it's too beautiful to hide away!! Hugs, Darnell

Another stunning glittery feather card, Mac! The starlight toparz is so beautiful on the feathers, and the left hand feather with the sand coloured glitter makes a great variation. I didn't know feathers stick to cardstock without glue so fast, either.
Superb work! Hideko :-)
