Lovely Amazing You - AHSC #101 Top 3 Winner


Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #101   Really wasn't sure what I was going to do for this sketch but knew I wanted something different but as colorful as flowers.  Also wanted to experiment with embossing.  Going through my embossing folders there was a Peacock by Darice that would work out for a corner focal point. Cut and embossed the peacock on Colonial White, took out my ShinHan pens and colored using different shades of blue, green, and purple, fussy-cut the peacock and then added StarDust Glitter Gel on the eyes of the feathers.  Coated the Peacock with VersaMark and added Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and heat embossed.  The background paper and border are from CTMH Jackson PaperPak which gave it a nice backdrop with the focus still on the peacock's beauty.  Added a couple of sequins and stamped Sentiment right on the card without layering to keep it a Clean and Simple Card.  Sentiment from Stampin'Up "Lovely Amazing You" borrowed from a friend.
