Feathers

My Husband had bits of MDF left after relining the walls in the camper van, he was going to throw them out, so being a crafter I thought I could do something with them. After a bit of muttering under his breath pieces were cut to size and holes drilled in them...will do the next lot myself  This has been a project that was put aside for later thought it was about time I finished it


Sanded the edges and corners gave it two undercoats then stippled the board by putting blobs of paint here and there  can't really see it in this photo but I am sure you get the idea
 I then covered it with distress ink spritzed with water and let dry wasn't very dark so I did it again
Added blue lace and braided ribbon down side Image is a prima doll stamp coloured her with copics cut an extra one so I could put the bodice on over top of feathers. Dress made with feathers with the fluffy part of them at the waist so the fluffy bits showed at the back put bodice on top of feathers with a row of beads at the bottom of the bodice Used a feather for her hair decoration with a blue bead Cut the flowers and leaves with the Cuttle Bug Did the sentiment on the computer Hearts from my stash. Threaded ribbon through holes on top  tied in a bow This can either hang buy the ribbon, or by the holes
