Feather Pen
by Trina Pham


Hello there.  I have a super CAS (clean and simple) mini slimline card today using the small Plumed Gypsy Feather and Hugs Tender Script dies from the February 2023 collection.
Started by die cutting a stencil from a scrap of thick white paper with the small feather die.  Cut away the three strips that extended in.
Positioned the stencil onto a 3”x6” Bristol panel and ink blended blue and turquoise dye inks with blending brushes.  Splattered with water and blot with a paper towel for texture.

Die cut another feather from another white scrap and stacked for dimension before adhering on top of the stencilled image.

Die cut the Hugs Tender Script sentiment from black cardstock.  Used the inside of the “h” loop for the pen tip.  Wanted to do a large ink splat, but was too nervous to do it, so added diluted black gouache splatters instead.  Added another piece of cardstock to the panel for a bit of dimension before mounting it onto a 3,25”x6.25” white mini slimline card base to finish.


So it appears Jean and I were on the same wavelength to die cut our own stencils. 😂  Anyway, that does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.





How clever use of the negative! Love so much this card, it looks so elegant and striking!

What a pretty feather!

Gorgeous feather pen, Trina! Love the blue shades and splatters. Thanks for the photo tutorial!

Such a great idea to turn the feather into a pen, Trina - love it!! Love how you used the negative for a stencil too!!
