Lasting Memories Sketch Challenge with Creative Memories Earthy Outdoors Addition

This is my very last full sheet from my Creative Memories Earthy Outdoor Additions kit.  I have just a couple of photo mats and stickers left.  I thought this last sheet fit perfectly with the sketch challenge at Lasting Memories this month.  Since I didn't have much paper left, I cut a photo mat in half for the blue bottom layer.  

Here is the sketch.  There is also a twist to the challenge: use something with feathers!

The sketch came together so easy, I thought I have to do something else though to make this layout pop.  That's when I remembered a blog post I read just Friday over at Unruly Paper Arts about enameling chipboard.  Please forgive, it was my first try at this technique. I used a mixed color ink pad to get different colors on the feathers then I used several layers of glassy glaze from Stampin Up.  My primary problem was that the feathers were so small they kept blowing over from the heat gun.  I think I will do better next time I try and I can't wait!
