Well if you could tell by your time stamp it is 2:00am.. I am going to have remind myself not to drink a grande french vanilla latte with no fat milk at 4:00pm.
So earlier today I was rummaging around looking for challenges that I may want to enter.. Well, well, well I found this gem of a challenge!! Fusion card challenge: Orange, Teal, Brown. I decided to design with both the sketch and the colors. When I saw this posting I instantly thought of a stamp set I have not used in awhile. It is by Fiskers and it features peacocks, my favorite!
|Card Size: 4.25" x 6"|
|Watercolor on the feathers added a sketchy|
feel to this card.
|You can see the larger feather behind|
the 'hello' sentiment
I stamped the background once using a very light gray, then stamped it again on a separate sheet using a darker gray and Distressed Ink. Then, used the Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass ink to apply more color using an aqua pen. Added some splatters using Gorgeous Grunge by SU. Embossed the dark brown banner, added orange borders and some enamel dots.
I also used a the bigger feather stamp from the set for the background behind the sentiment. I think it just tied it all together. Also I die-cut the peacock feather by Spellbinders out of vellum for some texture.
Love the way this one turned out.. It happens to be one of my favorite color combos and the sketch I found very interesting, something I would have never thought of. Thank you Fusion for the inspiration!
I am frozen because the house is an icebox this time of night. Well that is it for me and time for bed I have to get up in four hours.. eek..Thank you so much for stopping by and we will see you again..
All the best,
