Peacock feathers

Hello there!  Hope some of you are still here waiting for this long overdue blog post.  I thought I'd break myself in gently with a short post with instructions for one of the cards I made for Barbara's show from the NEC using a couple of the peacock feather stamps designed by Linda Williams. 


DISTRESS INK PAD - PEACOCK FEATHERS INK-DP-50091-XX
Wilted violet distress ink pad
Blueprint sketch distress ink pad
FRAMEWORK SQUARES STENCIL 7" X 7" STE-PA-00424-77
VERSAMARK INK PAD INK-VE-50221-XX
EMBOSSING POWDER - DETAIL GOLD ACC-EM-30237-XX 
Colouring pencils 
Black Sharpie pen 

Mask off 3 squares of the framework stencil
Blend the inks through with a sponge and sprinkle with a little water for texture 
Dust with talc, then stamp the feathers with versamark and emboss with detail gold powder
Add colour with pencils
Edge with a black Sharpie pen and mount onto a card blank to finish 

And there you have it.  Things don't always have to be complicated.  I will try harder to get back into the habit of blogging more regularly.  Till next time.  Love xxx
