This is a new challenge for me but as soon as I saw the photo on Pauline's blog, I knew I had just the stamp for it.
Isn't this just gorgeous? The ironic thing was that my brother and sister-in-law were visiting from NC and they have peacocks so Ann brought me a few of the tail feathers. I had an up close and personal inspiration and color guide.
Using my Fancy Feathers stamp and die from Clearly Besotted, I embossed the feathers in gold and colored them with Distress Ink. Guess what color? Peacock Feathers, of course. How perfect is that? *wink With a little Dusty Concord and Shabby Shutters thrown in for good measure. The cardstock is something I had in my stash and matches the teal of the feathers. I added a little Wink of Stella and an embossed sentiment from PTI and the card was done. I don't think the photo does it justice.
Thanks for stopping by. I love when you visit and even more when you leave a comment.
