Hero Arts Peacock & Stamp sale

This peacock image is an older Hero Arts stamp that I have not played with for a while so thought I would pull it out. I began by randomly applying Hero Arts inks over a tag in my stash (soft sand, soft pink and pool) then let the ink dry for a little while. The drying step is quite important because I wrecked my first tag by not letting it dry! Once the ink is dry I stamped the peack stamp on the tag with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The peacock stamp is a fairly solid stamp so I then rubbed Adirondack Pool ink over the entire piece the clear embossed area kept their original colors and the darker Pool color went into the unembossed areas which makes the peacock pop!
I then finished the card off by embossing a piece of cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder "Victoria" then rubbed Perfect Medium ink over the raised areas and dusted the piece with Perfect Pearls Pearl powder. I used my Tim Holtz medallion die to matte a Stampendous sentiment.
Don't forget this week only all winter/holiday stamps and stickers are 20% off also all the clearance items are now 60% off at the store.
Thanks for stopping by!
