Wonderful


I was just about to start dinner and an idea hit. Lucky It was easy night so I gave Elysha left overs and went to my craft room. I was thinking about peacock feathers and the colours and the new die I have from Papertrey for feathers anti came together quite well I thought. Both of these feathers have been cut from the front of this card and then put back into the negative space. I coloured the feathers


with Distress Inks, then removed all the little bits and coloured the feathers a bit heavier. I then used double sided sheet inside the card across the area where the feathers would go back into. I put the feathers into place then all the little bits which I then decided to cover with 'Wink of Stella'.



Once they were all secured in place and glittered up, I added a couple of gems that have the most amazing colours that bounce around in them. Finished it off with a silver mirror cardstock die cut'Wonderful'.
Now I have the stamped ones to colour but I realised I needed to get dinner for the DH and myself and get this card uploaded before the challenge Closes.


Challenges:


Peacock colours
ohh 10 hrs left I might get that other card done anyway :)











Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
