Flower Patch | WWYS #62

I have such exciting news that accompanies today's post - I have been invited to join the WWYS (What Will You Stamp) as a Design Team member! You could have knocked me over with a feather, the invite was such a wonderful surprise; I'd like to say thank you to Kylie Bertucci for all the help and encouragement she has given me, I wouldn't be blogging without her!

For those of you that don't know, the WWYS Challenge blog highlights a different stamp set from Stampin’ Up! each week. This week we are showcasing Flower Patch.

I've taken a slightly different approach to what I thought I would with this set, I've created a beautiful Peacock using the stamps and framlits from this set:



Can you see how I used the stamps to create the feathers!  I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give that lovely shimmer, and the Owl Punch to create the "eyes" on the tail. Being a Photopolymer set I was able to bend the stamp to create the branch - how cool is that!




Here's a close up - the shimmer that you see on the flowers is Wink of Stella.  I used Pacific Point for the body and Bermuda Bay for the tail, I decided to stamp the flowers in Daffodil Delight and Watermelon Wonder to accentuate the "eyes" on the tail - I think it worked a treat!

I also stamped the inside of the card to make it complete:

Remember, this set is available as Bundle, so you save when you buy the stamps and coordinating framelits together (make sure you select the Flower Patch bundle when purchasing).
