Elegant Peacock Feather from Creative Expressions

Thanks for all the great comments on yesterday's post about getting organised with colouring materials. Keep any ideas or ways you do it rolling in, I love hearing them all.

I've got a make to share with you today and it is a card.

I don't know why but I've just been inspired to make elegant projects with the DT stamp sets from Creative Expressions these last few weeks. The two stamp sets the DT received to work with for the month were Masquerade and If the Crown Fits and there is something quite elegant about the designs don't you think? I mean there is royalty and the promise of masquerade balls involved after all.


I've used two stamps from the Masquerade stamp set. I've used the lace square to emboss a pattern in white on the cream card and the shock of teal is the lovely peacock feather also from the same set. 

To add extra elegance I've layered cream linen textured card on top of each other, so a really simple colour scheme.

Enjoy your elegant crafting! Back to something messy soon I'm sure!

Kim

[EDIT: The feather is stamped with the Stream Ranger Adirondack ink]
