Proud as a peacok (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a card featuring the beautiful peacock from Indian Textiles, you can find them here with the other gorgeous new stamps available


I began by making an inky background using distress inks (peacock feathers, picked raspberry and mowed lawn) spritzed with perfect pearls and once the inks were dry I over stamped with the large ornate flower using gold stazon, it doesn't show up too well in the photo unfortunately. I then stamped the Taj Mahal silhouette with versamark and embossed with WOW gold EP.

The peacock image was coloured with Graph'It markers and promarkers and die cut with spellbinders .



I've added a gold die cut to frame the peacock and some ribbon and a peacock charm from my stash.

Have a good weekend and thanks for visiting today

  1. Claire, this is so pretty! You must be proud as a peacock to see how this turned out! Gorgeous colors! What "gold stuff" did you use for the medallion behind the bird?
    Hugs, Clare xo :)

  3. My goodness - the gold just really brings out all the vibrancy of those colours & really makes the brain think of the shimmeriness of peacock feathers. Very striking indeed.
