One card 2 challenges. This week I was running a bit behind, I normally make something for the Forgotten Friday challenge that Judith holds on her blog, and then something for the CD Sunday challenge. This week I have combined them and just made the one card. I have used this lovely image of a Peacock Lady that comes from Chocolate Baroque called Peacock Ladies. As it's has not been used for 2 years or more, it more than qualifies for the Forgotten Friday challenge, which asks you to make something from your forgotten or neglected stash. The theme this week at the CD Sunday blog is Peacocks, and I think that this lady in her Peacock finery covers that. I have also made it for my Daughters Birthday, which is in October (She does not live at home or visit my blog), when I will be sunning myself on a beach somewhere in Florida.
To make this card I used, a sheet of centura pearl card in a turquoise shade to make large size square card. The backing paper was printed from the Peacock Summer Party CD also from Chocolate Baroque, I mounted this onto some matt silver mirri card. The stamp was coloured with promarkers and distress ink pads. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the band across the middle, and added some ribbon. The feather I bought sometime ago but never got around to using. The gems used are a lovely colour of peacock green but don't really show in the photo, and finally the sentiment was computer generated.
Thank you for looking, your kind comments are always appreciated.
