Painted Pheasant Encouragement Card

If I close my eyes, I can still see the pheasant’s rising up out of the tall grass in the hay field next to my grandparent’s house – flying in short bursts. I loved when I would find a pheasant tail feather in the field, and I was fascinated by the black ringed pattern on the feather. That’s why I purchased this stamp set…for the good memories!

Today’s card uses the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set which will be available on July 1 in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. I also used the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set (Annual Catalog) as well as the beautiful Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper.

The card sits on a Cajun Craze base. I stamped and colored the pheasant using a variety of Stampin’ Blends then fussy cut the image out and adhered the pheasant to the layered circles. The circle background behind the pheasant was stamped using the “tree top” from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Evening Evergreen to resemble bushes and I blended Balmy Blue on this circle to resemble the sky. If you’re curious as to the coloring of a pheasant, just search on Google for images of pheasants. The panels on this card are adorned with the beautiful Pretty Prints DSP in evening evergreen.
