Feathers, Fur, Fins & More, 4 of 8: Elizabeth

It's all about those cute and adorable critters that make us go "Aww".

Today it is about feathers and fins.
The fins may be obvious, but can you spot the feathers?

If you guessed the feathers were used for the flowing seaweed, you're right!

A re-purposed ribbon spool was perfect for creating the sturdy circular structure for this underwater scene.

I removed the original top and bottom portions of the spool so I could fashion my own front and back pieces.  While the back piece is a solid circular scallop, the front piece was die cut to have a window opening in which a piece of acetate was hidden between layers of patterned paper and cardstock.

The fish were die cut from white cardstock and hand painted with acrylic paints.

Several portions of a feather were die cut from patterned paper, edged with ink and accented with crystal Stickles.  These segments were then adhered on their sides so the soft edges of the feather would appear as seaweed.

A small label stamped then die cut holds an "inspiring" wish.

Links for all these Penny Black stamps, dies and patterned paper are listed below:
