Gallery Idol round # 2

Hello Friends,

I´m so excited to share my card with you for the Paper craft Magazine´s Gallery Idol Round 2!!
The theme for Round #2 is " Die Cutting".

You can see the Paper Crafts post here. You can vote using the link on my side bar.



here is my card for Round# 2


closer view of the card


I wanted to show peacock sitting on the window which has mosaic panel.
For creating  window panel, I have used Sizzix Framelits ornate die set.I cut the label at  4 points to get two angles. I repeated this step with golden cardstock.


To give mosaic effect, I used some mosaic tile´s broken pieces and the grout ( mosaic cement).
For peacock I have used again Sizzix decorative vintage die set .


To create colorful feathers, I had to die-cut lot of tiny pieces using navy blue, golden and turquoise cardstock and then I distressed the edges of all the die-cut pieces.


After arranging all the die cut pieces, I did masking on card blank and sticked all the pieces.
Added some sequins. Sentiments are heat embossed with golden embossing powder from Knorr prandell.
Sentiment stamp is from The Alley Way stamps.
That´s my take on Diecuts. 

If you like my card, then please Vote for it!!

You can VOTE here.

Cheers
