Perfect Peacock Thanks- A Sketch, Color and Photo Inspiration Challenge :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I have been busy creating Thank You cards this week and wanted to share this one that was designed using the FMS188 Freshly Made Sketches Challenge along with  the CQC292 ColourQ Challenge and Just Us Girls #294 Photo Week Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit all three of the challenge sites- each one has a fantastic Design Team as well as inspiration from their galleries!

To create this card:

Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock and mount onto a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock, trim and mount onto the Coastal Cabana card base.

Ink the Perfect Peacock stamp using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the upper two thirds of the image using an AquaPainter™ with Classic Ink from the Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush and Tangerine Tango pads and use the same colors in Stampin’ Write Markers to add definition.  ***Note- I used Daffodil Delight first, then Coastal Cabana for the leaves :-)) ***

Add a few white highlights with the White Gel Pen and shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker.

Cut the panel for the sketch and mount onto Tangerine Tango cardstock, trim and mount onto Coastal Cabana cardstock.

Create the banners from retired Eastern Elegance and Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the Hexagon and Banner Punches for the banner points. 

Mount onto Tangerine Tango cardstock and create matching points with the punches and adhere behind the peacock panel.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, punch out with the Word Window Punch and create the banners with the Banner Punch.

Adhere  the sentiment to a knotted piece of Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine and mount onto the peacock focal image panel (I used Hot Glue for both of these steps:-)).

Mount the focal image panel onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
