One Cool Chick

Hi there, it’s Ruby.  I hope that if you’re having snow it's not causing you too much hassle.  We have been stuck in a couple of times but I decided to use it as an opportunity to wind down a bit and learn some crochet.  It’s been on my to-learn list for-ever!  So far I can do a flower and a granny square!

Today’s card is for a lovely lady I haven’t known very long.  She is the most generous, kind, and fun person I’ve ever met.  So very knowledgeable, I feel really privileged to have met her.  She has been giving me lots of her time and guidance recently so I wanted to make her a little thank you.  I thought this proud peacock was up to the job!

I used Paper Smooches My Peeps.  For the top left I just stamped the one feather five times to make that five arrangement and coloured it in.  For the beautiful peacock I used the following sets;
  • First fan: 5
  • Second fan: 2, 3, 2
  • Third fan: 2, 2, 2, 2
My Peeps

As you can see the sentiment is from this set too.  I need to use the Owl.  My friend coloured him the other day in the most beautiful colour variations, must play!

I used the following Copics:
  • G09, G05, G03, G02
  • YG25, WG23, WG21
  • V09, YR30
Stay safe and cozy!
