Peacock feather

This is a new stamp of mine, just a simple peacock feather. I used a big and juicy pad to get the shading and embossed with clear powder and then added purple and blue glitters (which aren't showing up!). Sentiment at the bottom is punched with SU punch and SU sentiment stamped on. I threaded the silk ribbon through two slits I made in the card. I really wanted some purple ribbon, but had nothing suitable.
I've taken the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge which this week is a bingo card option. I've gone for the bottom line of "punched/die cut, ribbon, embossing".

What a terrific stamp....I bet you will get heaps of use from that. And this card would be even pretty in real life with all the glitter showing.

This is a lovely CAS card Linby, the feather is so striking, and authentic with the multi tonal ink pad you've used. And of course I love the silky ribbon. Did youorder yours from America or didget it in this country?
Love Sarita xx
