Rainbow Feathers

Hello my CMHCD friends,

For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. You have a pick of at least three colors from the picture provided and remember, black and white are free! I would like to ask you to please identify your color choices in your blog post. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

As some of you know peacocks are my favorite animals. They are colorful and full of attitude which is what I love about them! They seem to act like they own the world and have the feathers to prove it! The inspiration picture isn't a photo of course but it does illustrate the magnificence of this creature. I saw this stamp on clearance and couldn't add it to my cart fast enough. I love the image, sentiment, and its potential for color.

Now for our challenge!

I used all the colors!!!

This was stamped on watercolor paper. This paper is very coarse and lumpy for stamping. I have to stamp several times to get a clear image. In this case, however, I embraced the inconsistent stamping. When I was done brushing on the color I came in with a black Copic and colored the center with some true black. The outer edges were left with partial stamping. I left it because it added a sense of dreaminess and wonder.

When I was done adding color I added a few white dots with a gel pen and some black dots in groups of three around the edges and in the middle of the image. I think it added interest and whimsy.

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and stay healthy. Until then take care and we will see you soon!
