Feathers and Lighthouses DT projects

It is the first Sunday of the month and I am here to share my DT projects with you for February! First of all here is my Card for Stamping Sensations where the theme is Fur and Feathers. I opted for 'feathers' and came up with this:
I used a mixture of Adirondack inks and distress markers to colour the stamp from Indigo Blu. The sentiment is from the same set. The background was created with my Celtic rollagraph wheel.
Here is the prize from our generous sponsors for this month - Stixz 2.
Enough sticky stuff to keep you going for ages! My super talented teamies have made some gorgeous creations too, so do pop over to the challenge blog when you have finished here... oi! not yet though!
On to my second card...
Next up is my card for Craft a Scene this month where the theme is 'Let your Light shine' and needs to feature a lighthouse, of which I have several! This one is an Inkylicious stamp, positioned on a rocky ledge made with a Stampscapes stamp. The grasses are all from Inkylicious and the  sea is from Stampscapes. The quotation is from a lovely set by Hobby Art. I coloured the rocks with distress markers in pumice stone, weathered wood and frayed burlap, and I was rather pleased by the way they turned out. Again my teamies have done us proud with their gorgeous lighthouse creations on the challenge blog, so do pop over and take a look there too.
Thanks for popping by and thanks too for leaving your lovely comments. I hope you will be able to join in this month. 


  1. Two fabulous cards, Sally! They're both gorgeous, but the owl is definitely my favourite! Great background too. Must skype soon! x

  2. First of all Sal, sorry to have missed your scenic photos lower down and the wonderful fusion of colours in the post below.

    On this post I adore the bold owl with and the Celtic background stamping makes me think even if it's not, it could be Edinburgh castle.

    And the sentiment on the lighthouse card is one I 'need'.
