You Add Colour To My World

Hi bloggers!  It is time to show off the Plumage Background and Proud Peacock die sets!  I started by cutting the Plumage Background into a piece of Ocean card.  While it was still in the die, I inked through it with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink.  I backed it with Royal Blue card.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to add a wide frame cut in white.  I cut the Peacock from the Proud Peacock die set  in white and the small feathers too.  Using a little glue on the tip of the leaves, I glued them through the holes in the peacock to create a more dimensional tail.  I added glue to the tips of the tail feather and used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz for a little bit of sparkle.  I cut the sentiment three times in white card and stacked them for dimension.  I glued it into place in the top of the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, anything to do with Peacocks I love, so this card is no exception. When I was in Italy once I visited the little island called Isola Bella on lake Maggiore and they had beautiful white Peacocks, their tail feathers looked just like lace, really stunning, just like this card. Love Jean xxx

Gorgeous card!
Love the background and the colours you have used, and the peacock is just adorable :))

Scottydog said...

Beautiful! I would never have thought to have done the peacock in white against the peacock coloured background! However that was just what was needed to show them both to advantage. Can I borrow your mind for a week Sue, mine doesn’t work like yours, more the pity! Thank you for all your inspiration.

June Horrocks said...

Love always xxxxxx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I loved this die when I saw it on pre-order and now I have seen what can be done with it I love it even more. You really don't need to add too much more to it other than a simple white embellishment and a sentiment.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a beautiful card and the colors are so typical of the proud and beautiful bird.

Each time I see anything from this collection it reminds me of my mother. She had at least 75 peacocks including several beautiful white ones like the one on your card. As a result this series holds a special part in my collection.

Have a wonderful day.

Beverly

Good Evening Sue. A little late for me today. Hospital visits getting longer.
What a fabulous card today Sue. The plumage on the Peacock looks almost real and so glad you have left it white. I once saw an all white one in Spain it was beautiful And he showed off his lovely feathers to us. Beautiful background. Thank you Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds
