Be A Showoff!

Hello and welcome.  I hope you enjoyed this last week's new release blog hop by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company.  If you haven't had a chance to take a look at some of the new stamp releases, you can find them in the store here.

Today I am sharing a card I made for this week's Color Throwdown #238 challenge.  I started out by stamping my background using the peacock feather from Be A Showoff in brilliant blue directly onto the card before stamping my peacock in memento black onto white card stock then coloring with prismacolor markers.  Since I was still dealing with a migraine, I decided to keep the card fairly simple and just lightly stipple brilliant blue around the main image and saying, layer then add some faux brads.  My only embellishments are some $1 store blue organdy ribbon and ice stickles highlighting the peacocks feathers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend.
