Feathery Inspiration JAI#236

Hello Crafters,

Melbourne is a very windy day today and hoping to reach 29 degrees, so I will quickly share a card I have made for the Just Add Ink ‘Feathery Inspiration‘ Challenge before heading out to a family BBQ!

I love this colour combination and needed to make a card for my friends birthday next week, and guess what her favourite colours are? Yes, blues and greens!!!

Flower Patch Peacock

I started with a card base of Bermuda Bay and a layer of coordinating DSP. I then stamped the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamps starting with Pool Party, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. I used the coordinating dies Flower Fair to die cut the images. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point card stock.

I used the 1/2″ & 3/8″ circle punches and the heart is from the Owl Builder Punch.

I added some rhinestones to the feathers for some more interest and who doesn’t love a bit of bling?!!!.

I added the sentiment from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set in Pacific Point and used the small oval punch.

The inside of the card I stamped an image from the Bordering Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink then coloured with the coordinating Blendabilities.
