ESAD Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. February 2018

Hello everybody,

Thanks so much for being here on my blog as i join my second ever blog hop, and first ever with ESAD. I hope you've been hopping through everbody's blogs and are enjoying them all. Thank you so much to Lou Kitzleman for arranging this blog hop. Our theme is 2018 Sale-A-Bration! Let's get onto what i made for you today.

This is the first time my Beautiful Peacock set has seen ink! I know, wowzers huh? So much product and such little time *cry* 😔lol.

I love a panel card, and have done a previous one using Fabulous Flamingo. You can find that Here

Today i have done another one. Only this time i have used 4 panels not 3, Making the gaps much much closer.




 I have stamped the body of my peacock in Dapper Denim, then i stamped the feathers in Lemon Lime Twist. With a sponge dauber, pick up some Bermuda Bay ink, dab it onto the feather stamp at the top and around the edges, and stamp over the Lemon Lime Twist feathers you just stamped. Doesn't it give a lovely effect. These peacocks are Gorgeous, just loooove the colours.

Once trimmed into panels i have adhered the image pieces onto Lemon Lime Twist backing panels, leaving only about 1/16" gap all the way around. They are laid onto a Night Of Navy card base. With the sentiment stamped in Night Of Navy, and Night Of Navy Crinkled ribbon for underneath it.

Inside of the card i stamped a peacock on Whisper White, layered the Whisper White onto Lemon Lime Twist then onto the inside.




I hope you like this card. Thank you so much for stopping by today. Following me is Jenny Hayward, head on over and check out what Jenny has made.




Below is a list of all who are participating. Please do try to get to everyone's blogs. Hugs.
