The Perfection of a Peacock's Feather

Just back after a weekend away, so I have alot of catching up to do with all my blogger friends, but first I wanted to share a quick little card. You might know that I love birds and especially the image of feathers. I think the feathers on a peacock are magnificent; their form, their shimmer and their rich color are truly amazing. With that thought in mind, I made this card using the peacock stamp 3853U  for my 100 Proof Press Design team project.

After stamping the peacock and cutting it out, I colored it with colored pencils and markers, then added tiny rhinestones. This sparkly piece was then added to a  piece of peacock themed patterned card stock. The royal blue german scrap, a fuchsia with gold trimmed ribbon were layered underneath. I added the definition "perfection" that was colored with pencils and  glued on tiny rhinestones.

Hope you see some something that is "perfection" this week.
take care, gerri

  1. I have to take my hat off to you on this one, simply for the design. Working with such a small stamp, making it the 'centre of attention' would have been a challenge (at least to me!). You did an incredible job. The colours are perfect. Nice to have you back. Donna
