Peacock Paisley Card With Heartfelt Creations

Posted by Rajni Chawla

Hello all...

Thanks for popping by my blog again. 
Crafting is something I really love to do....even when I m unwell. Last week was really a bad week for me. According to my doctor, I need complete rest for few days and should not sit for long with my legs hanging down. No problem, I can manage to craft on the bed as well. :D 
I am happy and live only if I am able to craft. 

I might not be active on FB or any other social media but will surely keep all of you inspired by few of my new creations that I made few days back. I have already scheduled posts here on my blog and that will be copy pasted by my daughter on my other profiles. 

Getting selected as one of the semi-finalists for Heartfelt Creations Dt Team really made me super happy  and I thought I will keep you all more inspired with my few more creations with the same brand. Heartfelt Creation stamps are one of my favorite stamps ....Very versatile in not only making the backgrounds and flowers for the projects but also for making fancy embellishments. Sometimes when I create a card or a tag I give more stress on the embellishments. The card that I am sharing today is the example. The main stress is on the focal image which is Peacock. Though I have worked on the background also but that Is complimenting the embellishment and the whole card and is not disturbing the beauty of embellishment I made. 

Heartfelt Creation supplies used: 

Other supplies used: 

Distress inks: Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean
Staedtler Pencil Colours 
Koi Brush 
Clear rock candy glitter 
Lime Green Stickles from Ranger 
Spellbinder's Victorian Arch 
Spellbinders classic oval die template
Glossy accent 
Die cutting machine 

Here is the full view of the card...

A close-up showing the background. 

The background is created by simply squeezing both the shades of distress inks on the card stock and then misting it with water and heat set. Stamp the image with Cobalt Blue Archival ink and lift the colour using koi water-colour brush. Colour lifting technique which I also call water wash technique is one of my favourite technique of making backgrounds. I accidently stumbled down this technique while teaching one of my student in Hyderabad 2 years back. She was the one who was always scared of picking the colors while painting but was very keen of using bright colours. The softness of colours you get after lifting it with water gives tints and tones of the same colour. 

All the daisies are fussy-cut, painted roughly with salty ocean and peacock feathers and embossed using Heartfelt Creations Delux Flower Shaping Tool Kit and then decorated by adding a small drop of lime green stickles. 

 I have layered the body of peacock and tried to give 3dimensional effects by cutting separate layers and adding glue dots. 

Have you ever read..."The sparrows are sorry for the peacock at the burden of its tail." 
Aww....sparrows should not !!
That's not the burden thats the beauty of peacock which is making him unique from all other creations of God. I added few extra feathers and made it look more beautiful. 
The sentiment tag is from designer paper HFC Peacock Paisley Collection.
