Feathers and mirrors

I originally made this for one of my DT pieces, but the challenge has changed to a different theme now so I thought I'd share it anyway as I think it's rather striking.

The spattered background is stamped with a very old Anita's stamp - I can't do "real" spattering without making a mess of myself, the furniture and the ceiling! The teal feather is die cut, as is the sentiment, and the other feather is an acrylic mirror sticker from a set I bought in a pound shop years ago and have only just opened the pack.

I am sharing this with
Use Your Stuff - feathers 
CAS Mix Up - Stamping, splattering & die cutting OK, I cheated, I combined the stamping and splattering!)
