Hello friends and welcome to Day 1 of the Newton's Nook Designs April Release! Today we are revealing the gorgeous new Beautiful Plumage stamp and coordinating die set. This set is another addition to the Beautiful Swirls series. The swirly designs are just perfect for a pair of beautiful peacocks! Don't you agree?
You Are Amazing Card
I began by stamping the peacock image from the Beautiful Plumage stamp set with Versamark Watermark Embossing Ink twice onto watercolor paper and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. To cut out the images, I used the coordinating Beautiful Plumage dies to die cut one of the images and then I fussy cut just the body of the other image. More on what I did with those two pieces in a bit!
I then pulled out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and added just a dab of color and used my waterbrush to blend the colors. (Zig Marker colors used: Peacock Blue, Cornflour Blue, Persian Green, Emerald Green and Light Green)
Using double sided foam adhesive, I adhered the fussy cut peacock body onto the full image to give it a little bit of dimension. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with gold as well. The card is finished off with the addition of a bit of die cut cardstock and a bow.
