Proud Paisley Peacock
This weekend Splitcoast is hosting Virtual Stamp Night Challenges. They are so much fun. However, it almost seems criminal to stay inside and stamp today, since it is finally a beautiful sunny day here. What has it been? About two months since we've seen the sun?
I did sneak some time to participate in the "Polly Wanna Cracker" Challenge, which is to make a brightly colored square card using a bird image.
I've been wanting to color "Paisley Peacock" from The Stamping Boutique for a few weeks now, so this challenge finally satisfied the urge. I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers. I added many touches of Stickles, so in real life, the card truly glistens. Patterned paper from Bo Bunny and black cardstock make up the layers of this card. A sheer ribbon and a small tag cut with a Cuttlebug die puts the finishing touches on this card. The sentiment of "So Proud" is computer-generated.
I'm so proud of myself for balancing my day between sunshine and stamping, though I fear now that the sun has gone down, I may pull an all-nighter in my stamp room.
