It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog. This fortnight the challenge is "embossing - wet or dry or both".
For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "White Peacock Dryad". This image is available as a individual rubber stamp, on a stamp plate (Sheet 27, Plate 86 - it comes on a stamp plate with Ching-Chou Kuik's Jeweled, Radiant Butterfly and Field of Poppies) and also as a digital stamp. For my card I have used the rubber stamp and coloured it in with Promarkers/Flexmarkers and highlighted areas with a white gel pen. I decided not to used any patterned backing paper as I wanted to use a new embossing folder and stamp set I got free with a magazine. I highlighted the peacock embossing detail with a green Pan Pastel. I have made the flowers with layers die-cut from a book and inked with Tim Holtz's Pine Needles and Peeled Paint distress ink, screwed them up and then held the layers together with brads. I have finished the card off with the stamped frame/small peacock image that came with the magazine, card candi, raffia ribbon, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, organza ribbon, peacock charm with some memory wire threaded through it.
