Adding just a pop of color added to a black and white project can be very dramatic. When you use Rinea Foil Paper as that pop of color, it not only adds drama, it adds a level of elegance as well. Black cardstock, Snowflake StazOn Pigment ink and Rinea Foiled paper are the perfect combination for drama and elegance!

For my card today, I have created a peacock inspired color blended background. I have used Versafine Clair Inks and Jumbo daubers which make blending super easy and seamless. Once the background was ready I used a beautiful lacy rubber stamp and the brand new Stazon Pigment Ink in white to stamp the image. This delicate image was crisp and beautiful. To finish the card I used a die cut and a sentiment. I also added gorgeous sparkle using the new Sheer Shimmer Stix.

I am happy to share this Peacock Feather theme card. I was aiming to create watercolor-like stamping on the paper and I used Ink Potion No. 9, as it causes no damage to the paper when dries instead of spraying with water. The result was to create a background that had depth and full blur coverage while it helped the embossed designs to show up, making it the centerpiece of the card. The Sheer Shimmer Stix added the shine of gold color like the one you find on peacock feathers and it turned out perfect! See how I made this handmade card.
Time: 1 hour
Heavily spray a 4 x 6 inch watercolor paper with Ink Potion No 9. Use the VersaColor Celadon, Turquoise and Pacific ink pads to stamp peacock feathers while the paper is still wet.
When the watercolor paper dries, stamp with the VersaMark Watermark inkpad and cover with Imagine’s embossing powder Lucky Stars. Heat set with a heat tool.
Use a BrushStix to add color detail at the corners of the paper and the in the center of the peacock feathers with the VersaColor Royal Blue inkpad.
Add sparkle with the Sheer Shimmer Stix in Gold.
Cut a paper doily and stamp with the quote “Perfect Just the Way You Are” with the VersaFine Clair in Rain Forest.
Use the Tear It! Tape to set the watercolor paper and the doily on the card base.
Buy a pre-made frame or cast a frame with lightweight clay and when dries add sparkle with the Sheer Shimmer Stix Gold.
Place the peacock ribbon first. Cut it in half to give the illusion it is under the frame. Attach the frame to the card face then place the sentiment inside the frame.
Continue decorating with the paper flowers and metallic details. And you are done!
