Celebrate

I recently played with the beautiful Peacock background stamp form Hero Arts and my STAEDTLER  Karat Aquarell Watercolor Crayons and Pencils.

The background is created with mixing colors of  watercolor crayons. I smeared the water color crayons together on STAEDTLER watercolor paper and then used water to blend them together. I used a mix of spritzing water and my fingers to smooth out the colors and blend.   After that had dried I stamped the peacock with purple ink.  I then came back and added colors to the peacock using the Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.  Then to bring back in the highlights I used a white gel pen for touches of white. The sentiment is from the Stampers Anonymous - Simple Sayings plate stamped using the Rose Madder color from Ranger Archival Inks.  I inked over the stamped image with Versamark. I heat embossed with the Stampendous Crystal Embossing Powder. It adds a beautiful subtle shimmer to the surface. 

I sent this card off to my sister whose birthday was yesterday.  Happy Birthday Lisa!
