Weaving, Embossing and Watercoloring...(and some stamping too!)

I made this super fun card using ARTful Inkables new sets, Peacock Pagentry and Paisleys and Peacocks. For the woven background, I chose a designer paper that had the colors I wanted to use in it and I cut them into one inch strips. Then I chose a solid color in my pallet as well. I adhered them to a 4 by 5.25 piece of card after I wove them together. Then I trimmed the edges to size. I took my Peacock Pagentry stamp and embossed the background with detail gold embossing powder. Next, I embossed this awesome Peacock with gold as well and watercolored her. I cut a matt to match the shape that the peacock is on with my nesites.  I added this wonderful bow and a fun flower to finish my bow off and here is my creation! Please take a look at the blog hop over at ARTful Inkalbes that began yesterday and leave comments for a chance to win some of the new releases! Thanks for stopping by!
