World Treasures CCMC 272

It's time for the Thursday Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  Today the challenge is a color one:  using Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and So Saffron for your project!
 

I really like the way these colors look together!  I used the proud peacock from the World Treasures set (that I haven't used enough!), embossed him on Whisper White cardstock using my firm foam Bermuda Bay ink pad and Clear Embossing Powder (you CAN emboss with the firm foam pads if they are well-inked, you have the embossing powder ready, pour it on the stamped image quickly and heat.)


I then used a Blender Pen and ink refils to color in his pretty feathers.  I added the tiniest Pearls and a Rich Razzleberry Glimmer Brad to dress up his tailfeathers even more.


The sentiment is also from the same set.  I colored it with markers before stamping, cut it out with the matching Apothecary Accents Framelit, then cut off the white edge and layered it onto a Rich Razzleberry piece cut with the same Framelit.  It is decorated with more tiny Pearls and two yellow Rhinestones colored with a Sharpie marker.

Here again are the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge CCMC272 colors:

I LOVE your card! I have this stamp and have used it several time. You just don't see it used very often. Your embossed background and the details on the peacock are fabulous!
