Crafts 4 Eternity - #44 & Whiff of Joy/Sketch Saturday

Friday evening & time for another fab challenge at Crafts for Eternity. This week we would like to see you follow the recipe
1. Follow the Sketch
2. Include bird (s)
3. Use pearls

My first card follows the C4E sketch. I made it for my Dad's birthday. He doesn't do cute, so I used this peacock image from Elusive Images. I stamped it with Promarker Pens & coloured with chalk inks & a Brilliance gold inkpad with my finger!

The DPs are K & Co Blue Awning. I also used another Elusive Images feather stamp on Shrink plastic for the embellishment.

Unfortunately I couldn't capture the shimmery effect the gold ink gave in my photos. Please check out the fabulous creations of my fellow D-Teamies. Play along us this week & you could win 3 digital stamps from the C4E range.

I've also made another card for the Whiff of Joy challenge. I used felt ribbon to satisfy the 'fuzzy' element of the challenge. I used the fab sketch at Sketch Saturday for my layout.

This is coloured with Distress Inks & the DPsare Basic Grey - Kioshi

I added a few flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts & roughed everything up. I seem to be on a vintage vibe at the moment!

This has been rather a long post so thanks for bearing with me.
Have a great weekend!

Big Hugs!
