Just for Fun - Different use for a Rubber Stamp

Apologies I was missing last week, Ive tried to get caught up but failed im afraid.

This is what I have made for this weeks challenge at Just for Fun which was to do something different with a rubber stamp.

Ive bought so much crafting items that havent been used very much and my Melt pot is one of them. I had some left over melted utee which was a mixture of a few colours which meant it had shades and streaks running through it. This made it perfect for this project.
I have some lovely peacock stamps which always look nice , and one in particular is the one I have chosen for this project , its set in its own square making an ideal size for an embellishment.

I was pleased with the way the stamp and the colours in the utee went together.

I added some jade green velum to the front of my card to match it in with the shades in the feather. Added some tartan adhesive ribbon which put me in mind of these big country houses where peacocks roam free in the grounds.
I attached the feather and the stamped utee embellishment to the front of the card and then added a stamped image of the same rubber stamp to the inside of the card .

I was pleased with the finished result and will definately make more utee embellishments using rubber stamps.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, enjoy the rest of the weekend , Im off to work now.

I love stamping in UTEE, especially when you get some great colour changes. Glad you have done this and what a gorgeous stamp you used for it. As you said, the rectangler is the perfect size for an embellishment on a card.
Bet the recipient will be pleased with this one.
Thanks for joining us again at JFF.
