Hello, everyone! It´s Silvana here. Welcome to the PFS blog! Today I´m sharing a creative idea to use a lot of supplies of the new March release. But you can use whatever supplies that you already have in your stash!
Let´s talk about the card. It has a composition of three parts that fit together because the products that I use have the same "theme" (almost, but I made it happen lol).
On the bottom of the card I used the new 6x8 Tree Bark Stencil which remind me of the peacock´s feathers so I decided to ink it in this beautiful bird´s colors. Yes, the stencil it´s made to resemble wood texture, but I thought of the pattern in the feathers... To apply the ink, I used a combination of the tools that Picket Fence Studios has: the Life Changing Blender Brushes for the soft hand, and the new (and amazing) Paper Pouncers for the heavy hand. The pouncers help to apply a lot of ink in an easy and comfortable way, so I´m in love with them.
On the right you can see the peacock from the new Illuminating Peacock stamp set and the sentiment is from the set too. I used two colors of ink here to make the peacock pop.
The top part of the card is my favorite one and has some work, but totally worth it. I started by creating a mask with the Fanciful Feathers Die cut in some kind of masking paper or wide temporary tape. I put them in the remaining space and then applied some ink with a heavy hand. After that, I put a thin layer of Paper Glitz Sparkle and waited to completely dry. I removed the feathers masks and the result was incredible! Shiny and different from the other two.
To finish the card I added some sequins from the new Sequin Mix Peacock tails. This card is a 5x7 one, so I cut the background 1/4 inch from each side and tape it with foam tape over the card base. The sentiment is also tape with dimensional tape.
I hope you like this idea and give it a try! Maybe you can search in your PFS products and find some that combines and make your own version.
Thank you so much for reading.
See you in my next post.
Have a wonderful day!
