This hop will showcase projects that have been created using some of the

We are thrilled to have you joining us this month!

During the hop, you will see some past favorites, oldies but goodies, and get a glimpse of some NEW products as well! Feel free to browse the shop for amazing deals on tons of craft supplies and great handmade embellishments to use in all of your projects!

Our Monthly Hops are a great way to see the Pinque Peacock Products in action and to get your creative imaginations in "Full Speed Ahead" mode!



     Good morning, I am so delighted to have you stop by and see my project for the Hop. If you just came from Kimberley then, if not, You'll want to be sure to see her wonderful project on her BLOG
     In keeping with our theme of Stamping and Journaling, I decide to create a card for my Husband who has a birthday coming up Tuesday. First the base card. I used a beautiful card stock from the Shop. It has a wonderful sheen to it and is a great weight. All projects should start with a quality base. You can find this and other card stock  HERE.

     I chose this wonderful sailboat stamp and colored it with my Copic markers. I have both Certifications from Copic and sadly I don't use them nearly enough so this was a wonderful challenge for motivation. I have noticed people using colored pencils lately and thought I'd add a little tip here. After you color your image try using Gamasol with a small blender over the areas you colored. It blends the colors in and makes it look like watercolors and gives a nice blended look. You can find gamasol in the art department at your local craft store.

     The background paper is Thomas Kincade and went so well with the scene I was trying to create. If you follow my blog then you know I love dimension and this card was no exception. I had gotten some sparkle gel pens from Jess so I used them to highlight the clouds and the waves. Just a few touches adds so much realism! I also used the Glaze black pen to make the birds stand out.

     Did you know the Pinque Peacock carries these pens? You can get them in the Shop HERE
     The journal part was simple. I used Tim Holtz words, short and sweet but to the point don't ya think? I finished this off with some Bakers' twine and Voila my Hubby's card is done.
     Your next stop on the Hop is Rebecca and you don't want to miss seeing her project. However you might just want to check out the information below to enter your project in our September Challenge, who knows, you just might be our next winner!!!
