Simon Says: Birds Of A Feather










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Birds Of A Feather 
This week we are challenging you to create something with birds or feathers, or you might like to think of some other meaning for the phrase!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
Please pop by and see what our super talented guest Amber and the DT have made!! AWESOME!! 


I used a beautiful Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock and coordinating dies as the focus of my card. Isn't it stunning! I also used the Peacock Laying Ink Cube Set, specifically chosen to go with this set. 


 For the background I used a Peacock Feathers Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Paper Artsy Infusions along with a Bubble Stencil and White Embossing Paste. Before it was dry I also sprinkled with Prisma Glitter, so pretty and sparkly IRL ;-) 


Artsy angle 


And I finished the inside.

Way to nail the Infusions, my friend! I love how this turned out and I think it's stunning how you worked the texture of the polka dots with the Infusions. The Prisma Glitter really gives it that final pow. This is one of my favorites of yours!
