Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! November is a time of gratitude and thanksgiving, and we’ve made projects that say “thanks!” to special people in our lives. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I am thankful for where I grew up. I lived on a small farm in Iowa and spent most of my time outside exploring creeks and playing Hide and Seek in the cornfields. A favorite time for my sister and I happened after harvest was over, and the hunters would come to hunt pheasant. At the end of the day, we were gifted some of the beautiful tail feathers of the birds. Those feathers were many things. Most of the time they became magic wands. Something that simple made us so happy.
My card today showcases the beautiful pheasant in the stamp set Painted Pheasant.
I painted my pheasant using daubers with the ink colors Cajun Craze, Coastal Cabana, and Merry Merlot. The fallen leaves use the same three colors. All of the stamped images were fussy cut and adhered to the front panel. The Merry Merlot card base was embossed with the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. The center section is a piece of Distressed Gold 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is stamped in Merry Merlot on Very Vanilla Cardstock and die cut using a die from the Joyful Flurry bundle.

Your pheasant is beautifully colored! I can see the pretty tail feathers going home with you! Thanks for the dauber technique idea for this stamps. It worked perfectly.
Great way to show off that Pheasant. I’ve always loved the look when using daubers and this is a perfect example.
Thanks,Lynn. I tried several way to color it and the daubers were the easiest.
Beautiful pheasant, Robin!
Robin, This is beautiful. I could use a magic wand!
Pretty colors on the pheasant, and lovely background!
Beautiful coloring of this sweet bird, Robin! Love it!
Robin, you are a fussy cutting expert! What a fabulous job on this card! The color combination is very pretty!
Awesome coloring of the pheasant, Robin. Enjoy your day!
