The July Challenge has started and as always the theme is Anything Goes.
I have bought the Feathers Collection Darkroom Door rubber stamps to experiment with and this card was my first creation.
I really love peacock feathers and decided to create the colour in them by making a background on gloss card. I did this using Brushos (watercolour crystals). These are great fun to use if you get a chance to play with them. I just sprinkled them on the card and spritzed with lots of water. The colours I used were Emerald Green and Cobalt Blue.
I got rid of the pools of excess colour using a sheet of watercolour paper (This I will save for another project later on).
I dried the paper with my heat gun and then stamped the peacock feather using Black Archival Ink.
I inked around the edge of the paper with brown ink and then put some Cosmic Shimmer Glue for Gilding flakes on a piece of foam so that I could add it to the feather stamp. I stamped glue around the edges and then rubbed Gold Gilding flakes over the images.
The border is a Tile Works die by Spellbinders. I rubbed glue around the edges of it and then rubbed the same flakes into the black card.
I added some remnant of different textured wool to the bottom of the main image before layering everything up.
I am hoping to experiment more with this stunning stamp set for the middle of the month.
What will you enter into the challenge?
