I tried to make a card that would fit her style and thought the peacock feather from Waltzingmouse Stamps Funky Feathers would do the trick!
The outer portion is stamped in Memento's new Luxe Pigment ink (in Teal Zeal) which is fabulous stuff! I colored the inside with a lilac Copic marker and then used the colorless blender around the edges. The inside purple is A Muse Studio "Grape" pigment ink. The center dot is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black with a small black rhinestone over the top. I outlined each feather with a BG10 Copic and then sponged lightly over all of the "white" areas of the cardstock with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress ink. Phew! It was fun to get inky like that!
I stamped the sentiment from Big Day-Today in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Detail Gold embossing powder from Stampendous. I didn't really want to cover up the feathers after all that inking!
I hope you had a wonderful day, Marybeth...and an awesome weekend coming up to boot ;)! XO
