Hi there! I created a housewarming gift for my friend and I'm sharing it with you today! It's my project for Decorate to Celebrate and... wait for it... there's a tutorial, too!
Here is the list of supplies that I used:
Heartfelt Creations Peacock Paisley Paper Collection
Feathery Peacock Cling Stamp Set
Peacock Paisley Die
Arianna Blooms Die
5 x 7 Shadow Box Frame
Black Swirls Bling
Black Embossing Powder
White and Black Cardstock
Heat Embossing Tool
Shaping Tool and Mat
Choose a 5 x 7 panel from the paper collection. Cut it out and stamp the peacock in a soft color on the panel. Do a little shading inside the image. Die cut the flower and stamen. Color the flower with markers and shape. Layer with foam dots and adhere to panel. Add pearl.
Stamp another peacock on white cardstock and shade lightly, then die cut. Adhere above the first image with foam dots. You can add the bling now or later.
Stamp a third image with Versamark and emboss with black embossing powder. Color the image and shade deeply with the sponge daubers. Protect the eye with a tiny piece of paper while shading.
Die cut the image after shading. Adhere to panel above second layer
with foam dots.
Insert into frame! That's it! You're done! This was a quick project with OUTSTANDING results!
Here is a photo that shows the three layers of die-cut peacocks. I think this could be done without shading the first two images, but I didn't know how much would show in the layers, so I added some.
I hope you've enjoyed my tutorial! Leave a comment and let me know what you think! Hugs!
