Stampin' Up! Week 52 Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Pretty Peacock

Hello and welcome back to my blog with the lovely ladies from Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop.

Today is week 52 and we are playing along with one of the new In-Colours called Pretty Peacock for 2019-2021.

This new colour is available to purchase in Ink, Cardstock, Ribbon, DSP and much more. 

I’ve decided to use Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Gold with the new in colour for my card this week. I just love how the gold and these colours goes so nicely together.

I was so happy to see the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set in the new Annual Catalogue for 2019-2020. I just love to water colour and emboss the mermaid. I’ve used Shimmery White Cardstock and Gold Embossed her. Then with my Aqua Painter I’ve used Pretty Peacock ink for her tail. I’ve used my Blends in Petal Pink light for the skin and Daffodil Delight for the hair.

For the background I wanted to try out the Ink blending technique on Shimmery White Cardstock. Using the Stampin’ Sponges I blended the colours together starting with Pretty Peacock. This was so much fun! Then I splatted water onto the Cardstock which has created underwater bubbles. I really loved using this technique, I might try using different colours next time.

The gold scalloped look around the edge of the cardstock is using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I think it gives a nice finish to the card.

For the gold seaweed I’ve used the Dies from the Bouquet Bunch and die cut them out using Gold Foil. To finish off the card I’ve gold embossed the greeting and placed a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. 

Thank you for visiting my latest blog and I hope you've enjoyed how I created my Pretty Peacock card. 

If you would like a new catalogue, please contact me today and I can send one out to you. 

Happy crafting
