Here's another two here and there samples, one went to the states the other is on with Jo Channon. Both use similar techniques to make them up but the toppers are different.
I started with a piece of white card to which I blended Distress ink colours, then sprayed it with the irridescent spray from Crafters Companion. Once dry die cut the feathers and build up th fan.
Not a peacock but a tropical bird.
The dies were cut from a card prepared the same way as before. The bird I cut with the blank shape then embossed with the filigree one.
The feathers were built up to give him a large fancy tail.
The embossed backgrounds were made using A4 folders from Creative Expressions for the top one and Crafters Companion for the bottom.
As we crafters don't waste anything, the ribbon strips were made from the card left over from die cutting.
Just watching Jo Channon on Create and Craft, I'm please to say the American samples have appeared.
