Pile It On! Challenge - Feathers and/or Flowers

We have a fun new Pile It On! Challenge starting today...with a theme of:

'Feathers and/or Flowers'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Aurora Wings:
Prize: a $10 gift certificate to spend in their etsy store!

I went for feathers and flowers, and used a Penny Black stamp called 'Cluck, Cluck, Cluck!'...colouring the image using watercolour pencils. The papers I've used are from the 'Ooh La La (for Her)' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual, and the flowers (held in place using a BasicGrey brad) are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
