The " Eyes" Have It :-)
Hi Again Stampers!
I just love the CCMC207 sketch at Create with Connie and Mary this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew that I wanted to create my own panel with stamps as one of the layers and of course, even though I wanted to create a bit of a masculine card, I ended up with paper lace, satin ribbon and a few pearls:-)
To create this card:
Mask the diagonal lines on a piece of Whisper White card and using Basic Black Classic Ink, repeatedly stamp the peacock feather from Fine Feathers. Using a Sponge Dauber, lightly sponge Bashful Blue Classic Ink over the entire panel.
Use an Aqua Painter with ink from the pads and watercolor the Pacific Point, Soft Suede and Gumball Green to create the layers of the feather. Use the Color Spritzer Tool with a Pacific Point marker to add the splatter effect.
Lightly spray the entire panel with Frost White Shimmer Paint spray...FYI- I was a bit too heavy on the shimmer but since the real peacock feathers have a shine...:-)
Cut the panel and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.
***NOTE***You possibly could just stamp the images in a row but originally I was going to try to make a one layer card and decided against it at the last minute…
Use the Big Shot™ with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the DSP background (from Comfort Café) and lightly sand with the Sanding Block.
Add the embossed lace panel, black satin ribbon bow, sentiment and pearls to finish off the card.
