I've been playing with one of those beautiful little Verve Visual Plain Janes again! Tonight's card uses the Isaiah 61:3 stamp combined with a Spellbinders Labels 1 die, some Copic airbrushing, and some Blue Hill (Crate Papers) patterned paper.
Although I loved that little peacock and didn't want to cover him up, any layout I tried seemed to cover him up. Finally it occurred to me to use a craft knife to slice carefully along his underside so that I could insert the edge of the focal image in and let the peacock serve as a photo corner element. He's coated in some clear Spica glitter pen as well; you can see the shimmer better in the close-up picture.
I wanted to add a splash of the tangerine color to the focal image, but I didn't have the right color of pearls or rhinestones--not a problem. I airbrushed some small pale yellow pearls with a Copic YR09. (I had already airbrushed the background , leaving the Labels 1 die in place to serve as a mask, with a Copic BG13 marker.) Inks were Versamagic Aquatic Splash, Turquoise Gem, and Tea Leaves.
This was a fun little card to make! Thank you for visiting.
