Any time I think about the new Sale-a-bration products, I am always drawn to the Beautiful Peacock stamp set. And, that is definitely something NEW that could be used for the Just Add Ink challenge this week. But, I also wanted to use something that I had not used before. I had just received the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders from the 2018 Occasions Catalog. So, for my something NEW, I decided to combine the two.
I decided to use the final scrap of peacock feather Eastern Palace DSP in Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide that I've been hoarding. Looks likes it might be time to get some more. I used the colors from the DSP to inspire the ink colors used for the peacock and his feathers.
This is a great card for an awesome friend using only the Beautiful Peacock stamp set. But, the So Many Shells stamp set has so many amazing sentiments, I decided to use a couple sentiments from that stamp set to insure this card is perfect for an amazing friend.
Here is another try at the same idea, but with the Peacock stamped on the embossing folder before the paper is embossed instead of directly on the paper that will then be embossed. This is supposed to make it look like the peacock is behind the vines. I first tried it with the same colors used on the first card. Dapper Denim feathers with a Tranquil Tide body, but it was difficult to see the differentiation of colors and to see the body separate from the feathers. So, I tried it again with a Basic Black body and Dapper Denim feathers. This worked out much better. I sponged Lemon Lime Twist onto the vines and added pearls to the tail feathers on this card. Let me know which one you prefer? Peacock stamped onto the paper or onto the embossing folder before embossing?
Make sure you head over to the challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
