LDRS Creative – First Post with Art-Z Penny Peacock

Good morning everybody!  How are we all? this happened….

Still pinching myself to be honest! So proud and honoured to be asked to join such a super talented group of ladies!  Anyway before I gush anymore I will get on with the job in hand!

So my first DT project for the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG features this stunning rubber stamp and die-set from Art-Z called PENNY PEACOCK.  This is a fabulous Zentangle style image that comes with sentiments and accessories and matching dies.

Such a unique and dramatic image deserved a bit of dramatic treatment I thought so I stamped on black card in Versamark then embossed with gold powder.  I then coloured using a very old set of metallic pencils I found; they worked surprisingly well considering their age. Bit like me really!!!! :)

I used the dies that come with the set to cut everything out then embossed a backing card with the fabulous PICNIC QUILT  embossing folder; an amazing value set of two wonderful designs! I then framed our lovely Penny using the GILDED OVAL DIE SET.

Rubber Stamp & Die Set: PENNY PEACOCK BY ART-Z
Colouring: Metallic Pencils
Embossing Folder: PICNIC QUILT
Other: Wow Gold Embossing Powder – Ribbon - Gems

So check out the LDRS Creative blog HERE where you can see all the totally awesome makes from the totally awesome DT and go to the store HERE to get all your gorgeous goodies.  We also have a YouTube channel full of education and inspiration and join our Facebook Group where we would love to see all YOUR LDRS creations!

Thanks so much for looking and taking the time to leave such kind comments; I really do appreciate it!  Have a wonderful day!

See ya!
