Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 21, Day 5

Hello My Dear Peachy Fans! Unfortunately this is my last day to post here on the PK blog as a GD. I wanted to thank all of you for leaving me the kindest comments here and on my blog as well as all the support. It made me really feel special! Thank you also to the fabulous Peachy Keen DT and Kathy the owner of PK for this wonderful opportunity! Thank you ALL!

My card for today is a bit different from the ones I posted during the week so far. It's in a more clean & simple style and this time I  used Distress Inks for coloring.

It's again that sweet bird stamp "Happy Bird and phrases". The sentiment I used is one of the phrases that come with the stamp. I stamped the image onto 300g / 140lb hot press water color paper using Archival Ink - Jet Black. Then I colored using Distress Inks (Milled Lavender, Concord Grape, Weathered Wood, Rusty Hinges - Walnut Stain to deepen the shadows) and also Twinkling H2O's on the belly for some shimmer effect. 



 For decorating my card I only used a satin ribbon and some rhinestones.

Materials used:

Stamp:  PK-267 Happy Bird and phrases
Designer Paper: Prima
Coloring: Distress Inks, Twinkling H2O's
Ribbon and rhinestones
Dies: Spellbinders

Don't forget to enter the candy right HERE today is your last chance
I'll randomly pick the winner tomorrow!

Again thanks so much for all your lovely comments and having me here as a GD on the blog. 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,

This week has been fantastic. I hope you show us more about how you colored this little bird on your blog. (Headed there now.)

Percilla G said...

I love this card and everything else that you have created all week long.
Seeing the projects has encouraged me to think about how to use my prismacolor pencils differently. Actually I colored a flower last night attempting to shade it based on what I have seen you do.
Thank you for the inspiration all week long.
