Good Evening !
I've been wanting to get my beautiful CB Peacock Fan (UA4SP0183) stamp set out again and finally had the chance this week. This set has 13 stamps... awesome. The Chocolate Baroque stamp company is located in England, but fortunately they have great service shipping to Canada !
I used the Peacock Fan & one of the Feathers from the set to create the card below. The colours on the actual card are more vibrant, I find that mauve has blue tones in photographs.
I created the background by blending Grape Soda, Sugarberry & Gold Lame Smooch Inks. I used a small acrylic block to add extra gold Smooch. I stamped the feather onto the background with Colourbox Gold Ink.
The beautiful quote is from Impression Obsession - C3541 'If you are grateful'. I stamped the quote with Midnight Colourbox Pigment Ink. I embossed it with clear and ended up having powder stick to the feathers on the background as I didn't realize the gold wasn't dry .....so the background feathers were embossed too. The clear embossing on the gold pigment that was half dry has a crackled effect (hard to see in the photo). Sometimes 'mistakes' are a way to learn something new !
I embossed the Peacock Fan with gold on water colour paper and painted with Tom bow markers & water. I popped the Fan up on the background and then added gold Starform border stickers for extra gold.
I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping at my Blog.
