Peacock Feathers

Masking and Stamping
I initially masked off the top and bottom of the card by tearing a piece of paper randomly.
I used various colours of distress inks and blended them into the diagonal strip.
I stamped the peacock feather using the Big and Juicy Dye pad called waterfall and then the sentiment in Archival Cobalt Blue.
I mounted the card onto the turquoise card and then onto smooth white card.
I did numerous versions before settling on this one...hope you like it?

I enjoyed doing the masking and blending techniques and  was inspired by the following challenges and will be entering the card into them:

Yes I fussed around far too much and left it so close that I didn't link it properly and left the first 't' out of the link address of http://thesweetestofpeas.blogspot.co.uk/ so I am really glad you found me. Thank you so much for your kind and generous comments. I really enjoyed 'eventually' doing the card and the techniques. Hello from me xx
