PaperArtsy Challenge Julie Ann Lee project "Feathers and Bones"

Hello crafters and welcome.
This week is very exciting, over at PaperArtsy blog, Julie Ann has been back this week and for her project she made tiny suitcase  Feathers and Bones. Blog is here.
I was inspired by her project but I didn't have the suitcase, so I followed her techniques partially.
I took Hanging chunky board, I was filled with Gesso and I used Grunge Past some part then painted Cheesecake, Inky Pool, Blood Orenge, Chocolate Pudding Fresco Paints. These colours was followd by Julie Ann. I stamped Darcy's collection EDY02 onto super smooth card and little painted. I really like her stamps, it make me some idea, can't wait new collections.
I fussy cut the paper lay out on the Hanging chunky board. I used TM idea-ology gears at the bottom of the four hearts. Tiny red heart is shrink plastic.  
Finally I stamped Darcy's sentiment onto curly paper like she did and I used Treasure Gold.

Thank you for stopping by. xxx


  1. Oh, Etsuko, this is so lovely. It is full of enchantment. I love the colours and the beautiful fantasy feel of it. Darcy would love it! Her stamps are fabulous and she is such an inspiring person with an amazing imagination. I love the way you used the hearts and the butterfly. You have inspired me, actually, you always do. Thank you for your support and for playing along with PaperArtsy. You're going to love all the new things coming along! Julie Ann xxx
