Inky Stamper Blog Hop - Spread Some Color
Hello my crafty friends! Welcome to the Inky Stamper Blog Hop!
Today I get to share two fun cards I created with the Inky Stamper Peacock stamp set. This is a fun stamp set with adorable saying like: Sorry to ruffle your feathers!, It's Showtime..., Strut Your Stuff, It's Your Birthday, and You make me Proud (in addition the the two sentiments I used in my cards). There are thee additional stamp props included in the set!
The first A2 card is Shake Your Tail Feathers. This card is a wobbler card, so the peacock wiggles back and forth.
I started off by stamping the peacock image a few times with embossing ink and embossed one peacock in black embossing powder and the second in Night Blue Embossing Powder by Brutus Monroe. This embossing powder changes as the light hits it. It is super cool. I colored the peacocks with Brutus Monroe metallic Aqua Pigments. I love the shimmer and rich colors you can get from this medium. They are so easy to use as water colors.
After die cutting the peacocks, I chose the Night Blue Embossed one for this card. I added a small wobbler to the back of the Peacock and positioned it over a a matted panel I made with ColorBurst pigments. (there will be photos further down in the blog)
My second A2 card is Spread Some Color. You will see I added the paint brush stamp and created and extra wing for our peacock to hold it!
I used Brutus Monroe Raven Detail Ink to stamp the full peacock once and just the wing and feet for the image of his second wing. I also stamped out the paint bush. I used my Spectrum Noir TriBlend Markers to color the peacock and paint brush.
I die cut the peacock and fussy cut the second wing and paint brush. I played around with the pieces until I had the wing and paintbrush positioned they way I wanted behind the peacocks body as shown below then glued them into place.
I added dimension with foam tape to both Color Burst panels and attached them each to a 4" x 5 1/4" card white front. I stamped Spread Color Wherever You Go on the front of the white card front.
To complete the card, I attached the Peacock with the paint brush using foam tape. I used a tape runner to adhere the card front to the white Card Base
I hope you enjoyed my Inky Stamper Peacock cards and tutorial
