SIP Challenge 36 - Perfect Peacock Thank You Card
Good morning everyone. TGIF!! I know it's Friday because the paper was laying in the driveway this morning and the dog, for once, did not pee it!! Maybe that means the weekend will be a good one. Today I am breaking away for the day from my 4" square note cards to show a card I made last night for the Stamp Ink Paper Card Challenge No. 36. It's one of their Card Maker's Choice challenges and I like them - no rules.
I've been wanting to use this Perfect Peacock stamp since the day I saw it in the Stampin Up catalog - and I finally got my chance. I started with a top folding A2 white cardstock card base. I cut a piece of black cardstock - 4.25" x 5.5" - and adhered this to the front of my card base. Then I cut a piece of cream mixed media paper - 3.75" x 5" - and heat embossed the peacock with Versamark ink and Black Sparkle embossing powder by Ranger. I also stamped the "thank you" phrase from the Because I Care by Stampin Up with Onyx Black Versafine. After that I colored the peacock with my SAI Watercolor Brush Pens. Once fully dry, I adhered it to a piece of gold cardstock - 4" x 5.25" - which I then adhered to the black cardstock.
Done!! I love how this card came out - very classy and eye catching. I hope you guys like it as much as I do. Please remember to leave a comment below for a chance to win, not just this card, but all the cards I am making in February!
Also, please head over to the Stamp Ink Paper Card Challenge and leave some love for everyone that entered a card. If you want to enter a project of your own, you have until February 28th - Sunday evening by 8:00pm. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 29th! Until next time -
