Hi there! Hope you all are doing great! We’ve been a little down, first with the stomach flu and then with a head cold this past week…ugh! We also have company, so I haven’t been able to rush to my craft cave and play. Hubby took the nephew (said company) to the shooting range this morning and the little is back at preschool, so I jumped at the chance at a little alone time. I’ve had this card in my head for almost a week now! It all started with the CASual Fridays challenge of a thank you card and Papertake Weekly New challenge – use a ‘new’ theme or use something new. Simon Says Stamp also had a new themed challenge when the idea was born, but I missed the cut off on that one. Their new challenge is Black, White and a Splash of Color, so we’ll just go with that for this card.
This peacock feather stamp was gifted to me last Christmas, but I’ve never used it, so I guess you could consider that new?? If not, the make up I used to color it is! Ha! The feather is stamped in VersaMark. I used some Q-tips in different eye shadows to achieve the look, which is super shimmery in real life. I tried to capture a picture, but it just wasn’t happenin’! Being the Virgo that I am, I absolutely had to be as true to real life as possible, so I used a real feather for inspiration. The sentiment is clear embossed with black VersaFine. Easy peasy! Hope you like! Thanks for stopping by! lyss
