April Release - Second set of Inspirations featuring Peacock Feather Doodle and Cutie Tweety

Hi All!

It's Priya here from Priya-n-Papers. I am here again to inspire you all with some of the cards I made with Mudra "Peacock feather doodle" and "Cutie Tweety" stamp set. Each one is so elegant and so different!

1. Peacock Feather Doodle - This is a very classy stamp set with a large peacock feather image and some matching sentiments! I am going crazy over this stamp set! It is so perfect for solid stamping as well as coloring! I am showing you both ways here! We can make wedding cards, Diwali cards, Raksha Bandhan cards using this stamp set as it has that indian ethnic look.

1. Watercolored Birthday card :

I first saw few pictures of peacock feather on internet to understand the colors so that I can give a realistic look! I was amazed by the vibrance of a peacock feather.

Procedure :
1. Stamp the peacock feather image with a dye based ink on watercolor paper.
2. Color the open areas of the image with any coloring medium. I used zig markers here.
3. Color the outside of the feather with a combination of green and yellow watercolors. it gives a real feeling of a peacock feather
4. Add a sentiment to the card. I used Birthday wishes from Floral Fantasy stamp set. I love the elegance of the font which was matching perfectly with the peacock feather image.
5. Basically this is it. But I diecut a curve using an MFT curve die at the bottom and added 3 similar die cut curves with matching cardstocks to jazz up the card.

2. Card set with heat embossing :

As I mentioned above, the stamp is so versatile that we can also use it only for stamping/heat embossing to create a complete card. I love the layout of this!
Procedure :
1. Take 2 colored cardstock of A2 size. Stamp both the cardstock at exactly same position using versamark embossing ink.
2. Heat emboss both panels using Golden embossing powder.
3. Die cut a curve in the middle of the panels. you can also trace and cut. It's a simple curve.
4. Interchange the 2 pieces and 2 cards are ready! Love love the outcome. I was able to make and arrange these 2 cards in 30 mins!!

Stamp sets used : Peackcock Feather Doodle and Floral Fantasy (for sentiments)

2. Cutie Tweety : oh boy! did you see how cute the stamp set is? It has 7 birdies images with other coordinated images that you would need to make awesome birdie scenes. I made 2 scenes here using the stamp set, a blue cloudy sky and a warm evening scene.

Procedure :
1. Take 2 cardstock panels of size A2. We will first prepare the backgrounds. For a day scene, I die cut clouds and used it as my mask to create clouds while I distressed it with Peacock feather distress ink. For evening scene, I used cloud and a circle die cut as mask to create sun and clouds. I distressed it with  Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade distress inks.
2. For evening scene, I also stamped the branch image multiple times using different green color inks to  create field effect.
3. On a separate piece of cardstock, stamp the birdie images with a black dye ink and color it with any coloring medium of your choice.
4. Fuzzy cut the birdies and stick it to the backgrounds we created as per your choice!
