Let’s get really colorful today.
I pulled out quite a few colors for this card. You really have to when you have a peacock as your focal point. This card features the Stampin’ Up! sets World Treasures (item number 126767) and Take Care (item number 126312). I think they work perfect together. I created my own background paper.

Started with a 4.25″ x 5.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock. Sprayed Cooper Smooch Spritz on the card stock.
Stamped the En Francais stamp using Soft Suede ink.
Sponged Soft Suede ink around the edge of the card stock.
Distressed the very edge of the card stock using Early Espresso ink.
Stamped the Take Care Limb by coloring the branch with a Soft Suede Marker and the leaves with an Old Olive marker and then stamped it on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock. You will need two of these.
Colored the bottom of the branches using the Soft Suede Marker to create a shadow.
Cut the two branches out and adhered them to the card stock using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamped the Peacock using Island Indigo ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock.
Colored over the body of the peacock using a Pacific Point marker, the diamonds using a Tempting Turquoise marker and the middle of the feather using a Pool Party marker.
Added River Rock marker to the tips and center.
Added More Mustard marker.
I cut the image out and then added a bit more color.
Added Tempting Turquoise marker to the bottom of the Pool Party area and blended it in with the Pool Party marker. Added Not Quite Navy marker to the bottom of the Island Indigo areas and the bottom of the birds body.
Added Certainly Celery marker to the bottom of the River Rock area.
Adhered the Peacock to the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create the Sun I made a dot using Pumpkin Pie and then sponged More Mustard ink around it.
Added a 5″ x 6.5″ panel of Island Indigo and a 4.75″ x 6.25″ panel of Lucky Limeade. Distressed the Lucky Limeade panel edges using a sponge and Early Espresso ink before assembling.
Added Island Indigo ribbon and Lucky Limeade brads.
Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.
May your day include all of the colors of the rainbow.
Until my next post. . . . .
