Silk Screen Feather

Hello Everyone!

The card for today has become one of my favorites of all time! The color of the feather is a bit different for a traditional peacock feather and the background is a bit dreamy. This resulted in a surprising and interesting outcome; the feather reminds me of a negative photograph. Do you agree? Maybe, anyway Enjoy!

This is a silk screen peacock feather using white acrylic paint.
then colored using colored pencils.
Dull silver embossing doesn't out stage
the focal peacock image.
Watercolored background with a silkscreen
peacock feather then colored using PrismaColor pencils.
I know a lot of crafters have this issue too but I couldn't quite get
the shimmer from metallic colored pencils
Even though the colors are off from a real peacock feather I still really enjoy the colors of this card. The blank panel on the reverse side needed to be a solid color and keep the feather a focal point. The black banner and dull silver banner are also understated. Thanks to Crazy 4 Challenges for the sketch inspiration and of course Sister Act for letting me participate!!

Color, color, color that is what this card is all about. I sometimes have to remind myself you don't to stamp images all the time. There are other ways such as silk screening! This silkscreen is from Martha Stewart and am so glad to have it in my stash. So here is how I did it.

How to:

  1. Cut my white card base to 6" x 4" and set aside.
  2. Painted the background of the peacock panel using basic watercolor.
  3. Silkscreen a black feather image using standard acrylic paint and let dry.
  4. Repeated step 3 but used white.
  5. Colored the feather using PrismaColor pencils.
  6. Layered color over color for more dimension.
  7. Created the banner with dull silver and black paper.
  8. Sentiment from black CS outlined with the same dull silver paper.
  9. Stamped sentiments using VersaMark Ink and then heat set using silver embossing powder.
  10. Cut and placed a piece of maroon CS to CS base per the sketch provided.
  11. Added the peacock panel to CS base.
  12. Adhered the banner and sentiment to card.
That should be it for me.. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to visit me.. Please leave a comment if you'd like!! Take care and see you soon!

All the best,
