Peacock Feather Card

This is a card for the Totally Papercrafts Challenge # 46 - Paper Piecing.

The base card is dark green hammered card A5 in size. Two contrasting green cards were given a pierced edge using a Borderability die. These were embossed and Pine Needles Distress ink highlights the embossing. The same coloured cards were cut with circular Nestabilities to continue the pieced theme.

An A4 piece of white card was sprayed with Glimmer mists in various greens and lilacs in a random way. Once dry this was over stamped with a Peacock Feather stamp from Elusive Images. The eye of each feather was painted with blue and lilac Twinkling H2Os.
This was trimmed to the required size and the sentiment applied in the corner with a Clarity stamp - Birthdays are a Feather in the Wing of Time.

The two sheets and the stamped sheet were applied to the base card with double sided tape. The peacock feather was cut down to the required size and boded in place with Pinflair glue. The layered discs were bonded together and then more Pinflair glue applied before bonding in pace over the end of the feather.
