Inspired by a lovely card by blogger Holly Endress HERE, I decided to give her idea a try.  She stamped a feather in Distress Black Soot and then pulled some of the black outlines in with a water brush, after which she added several shades of brown . . .

 Her feather image was an open, much looser design than the one I have, and with the thicker lines in her stamp, the shading effects were much more pronounced.    My version falls short of the effect I was after, but I will be trying this with other designs that are not so intricate.  I think this change will make a big difference with the results on my next attempt.  Back to the drawing stamping board!
