So you know how I asked for some themes the other week?
Well, one of them was “peace”.
I wasn’t entirely sure in what context this was so I avoided the obvious juxtaposition of war and peace (either in terms of military action and the literary creation) and went for something much simpler.
Mostly because I had a stamp from Inkadinkado that would work really well, lol ;)
The background was again from a stash of random six inch square papers that I had. I chopped a piece of this out that had some feathers on it, signifying a little random skirmish between the bird and it’s foe, and matched it up with some coloured cardstock.
I wanted the dove from above to be the central feature but have something radiating out, signifying the spreading of peace from the chirpy chappy so I got out my gem placement guide and starting marking out the dots onto which I would pop some mini gems.
When applying the gems (with a small dot of PVA) I deliberately chose intense colours for the central rings and lighter tones for the outer area to give the impression that they were emanating from the bird and spreading.
The bird had been previously stamped and cut out with the Brother Scan N Cut (yup, I’m working through that little stash quite well!)
I applied colour by gently buffing over some Versacolor pigment ink with a sponge. I chose colours that again worked with the background.
A coating of Glossy Accents was applied and left to dry before I plopped the birdy into the middle with some Pinflair Glue Gel.
And there we have it – peace, man.
Another one done! :)
