Fabulous Feathers

Greetings Dies R Us friends!



This week's inspirational DT card for Dies R Us is all about my favourite animal: the peacock. 

Dies used include:


I'd had this stunning image from Some Odd Girl called Peacock Kaylee for a while but had never done anything with it, until now. I didn't have just that right paper to go with this so I had a look through my impressive digital collection and found a kit called 'Pretty as a Peacock' by A-Manda Creations. Because its a digital kit I was able to tweak the colour tones so that they matched my image and printed them out on matt photo paper on my home printer.

I framed the image with Spellbinders Modern Stationary and embossed the image, which I then trimmed so that the border wan't as wide compared to the next size up in die.


I had THE PERFECT DIE to embellish this card and that was with the Spellbinders Jewel Fantasies on some bright cardstock to emphasize the hair & feather colour. After layering my card together I still felt that there was something missing so I reached for one of my trust favourite dies, the Cheery Lyn Designs Alison's Ribbons to add a simple, yet elegant decorateive ribbon. 


I finished this card off with my trusty Wink of Stella, a few rhinestones & a splash of Liquid Pearls. Done. Simple, stylish, colourful & elegant, just like a real peacock!

There is still time to play along over at the Challenge Blog. Challenge #12 will be running through until on October 28. The theme is 'Halloween' so get your spook on & join in the creative fun!
