Couture Creations - "You had me at HELLO" layout

Hello there everyone, 
Today on the Couture Creations blog is
my introduction as a DT member for another year.
I am looking forward to another wonderful and
inspiring year along with my talented ladies.
Be sure to check the CC blog for all the introductions
of each DT member, all this week.

So, on to my first  project for the month,
I have created a tag which I then used for on a
layout, featuring the peacock feather diecut from Couture Creations

Using the latest die cuts released from
Couture Creations the collection is called
 Glamour Days Collection , in the particular the 
diecut I created - is the

"You had me at HELLO" layout

Here is a close up of the tag in the corner.
The peacock feathers are created with the PEACOCK DELIGHT C0723702 

Step-by-step to create this tag

1. Embossed cardstock with Couture Creations folder
(This is an older release of an embossing folder called "Courtship"
but any Couture Creations embossing folder will do!)
and cut several peacock feathers with PEACOCK DELIGHT C0723702 diecuts
with white cardstock.

2. Ink edges with Vintage photo inkpad and all over embossed image with 
Couture Creations Sponge Daubers C0723623
then cut cardstock to fit your tag size.

3. Spritz water all over your PEACOCK DELIGHT C0723702 diecuts
with a water spritzer and while still wet,
dab distress paints over feathers, drying with a heat tool.
(allow the colours to blend together to create a cool effect)

4. Ink edges with vintage photo ink and with Couture Creations Sponge Daubers C0723623

inside each feather for a touch of glamour. Leave to dry.

6. Now attach your finished feathers and other embellishments
on your tag, Decorate with ribbon, flowers, twine etc.

I created a few more feathers to attach to the right hand side
of my layout. Until next time........

Thanks for looking
Cheers Adriana XX :)

Stunning, really stunning, I love the technique on the feathers, that die is fabulous. I also really like the notebook shapes at the top of the page and the notebook paper itself.
