New Stamp It Release - Dreamer

Stamp It has a new release coming this month!! There will be three full size sets included in the Dreamer Collection - Take Flight, Scattered Thoughts, Once in a Lifetime.  My focal image comes from Stamp-It Australia Dreamer EZMount Stamp Set - Take Flight.

When I saw the Take Flight set, I was immediately attracted to the peacock and I already had the perfect background to show him off. A few weeks ago I had made several original prints with my Gelli Plate.  To see the process I use with my Gelli Plate and all the supplies I use, please see my post here.  Well, I  ran into a few prints that were just not working for me - now I'm not saying saying they were ugly, but they're pretty darn close!  I looked through my stencils for the perfect 'cover up' and found the peacock stencil I received in January as a StencilGirl Club member.  I used it to cover up a few of those prints that were 'almost ugly.' :o)  The swirls are so cool and a great match for the peacock image.

I chose one of the above backgrounds, stamped the peacock image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored him with Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils (021, 043, 045, 059, 062, 072) to match the colors in the background. I cut the image to size and softened the stark white background with a tumbled glass Distress ink pad.
