STAMPlorations Challenges, a Reminder

 Afternoon folks. The merry month of May is almost halfway over already! Still it means that you still have time to join in over at this month's STAMPlorations challenges. Here's a little reminder for the Theme and Photo prompt one.

I took my inspiration from the feather and music score in the photo as well as the theme. I chose the larger of the two peacock feathers from the Feathery stamp set for this design, which sort of dictated the colours too.
On a panel of scrap card, I stamped it repeatedly and embossed with white EP. Then I took the score stamp from the Scribbly Splattery Grunge set and stamped in the gaps with Versamark and heat embossed with gold EP. Not too much gold, just a hint.
When dry, I went in with some Peacock Feathers, and Cracked Pistachio DOx and inked over the embossing. The excess ink was removed from the embossing with a dry cloth before I splattered the panel with water, left for a minute or two then patted with a dry cloth to remove the water and ink, to give a bit of texture.
On another scrap of card, I experimented with some Brusho stamping. I first wet my peacock feather stamp with water, stamped with my MISTI onto white card a couple of times, then sprinkled the panel with Sea Green Brusho, then repeated the stamping with water. The result was a bit too pale, so I went in with a fine brush dipped in water and pulled out some of the Brusho to create a more filled in look. The eye of the feather was coloured in with a dark blue Zig watercolour marker, then cut with the co-ordinating die .
To complete the card, I added two panels of white textured card over the top of the inked one, added the die cut feather and a stamped sentiment from Balloons and Banners stamped in black on a matching strip of card. The finished panel was trimmed to just under A6 size then added on pads to an A6 note card. 
For more inspiration and for all the Ts and Cs, please check the STAMPlorations blog and get crafting!
