Plume from IndigoBlu

I have had the stamp 'Plume' from IndigoBlu for a little while now, and I have been thinking of a design that I could use it on. I finally created a card.

The stamp reminded me of a peacock feather so I used the colours of a peacock as my starting point.

products used: inktense pencils - turquoise, deep violet & deep rose, posca paint pen - pink, memory box die - distress windham collage, studio calico - wood veneer heart, versamark, ranger embossing powder - seafoam, art basics heavy gesso - white, mixed media paper, book paper.
