Stamping doesn't have to be expensive. I purchased a clear stamp set of a Peacock and Peacock feathers at an amazing deal. Such a good deal that I bought 2, (be on alert some SOC member will be getting RAK'd). What I already had on hand, Block embossing ink, clear embossing powder, misc bling (I got free in something that I normally would have thrown away if I weren't a paper crafter), also blue and black card stock.
I stamped the Peacock with Black embossing ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heating tool. I stamped the large peacock feathers with black ink, and cut is in half and added the bling. I layer the peacock as well as the feathers stamped on blue layered with black then blue, place on a black card. I place a layer of Blue inside of the card. I attached the peacock across the opening with dimension foam on one side and a magnet set on the other to allow it to open.
What do you think? Is it pretty as a peacock?
Look at what you have on hand, and enjoy using all the supplies you have collected. Have a great week.
