A Beautiful Day (by Shirley)

Hello everyone!  I hope you are doing well and enjoying your Spring. 

I'm in love with the new Peacock designs, each one is more beautiful than the next.    My first design using the new stamps features a beauty from Tangled Peacock.

The background is created with Dylusions inks, TCW stencil - mini Fleur DeLis and Viva green gold modelling creme.  I sprayed water over the stencil in the bottom left corner and blotted with a towel to get the 'ghost' effect.  The beautiful Peacock was embossed with gold and I painted with Tombow markers.  I cut out the first one and stamped it a second time to decoupage the feathers and wing.  The wonderful sentiment is from Loving Sentiments .   I'm giving this card to a dear friend who is turning 90 this month!  


Thanks for visiting and please come back soon to see the beautiful designs by my talented teammates.  You won't be disappointed !

Have a great day,


  1. I absolutely love the way you used the Fleur de Lis stencil to echo the sahpe of the peacock's feathers - especially your layering of his tail. The colours are beautifully vibrant, the more so with your ghosting plus the white on the tail.

  2. This is beautiful Shirley all that layering on the peacocks tail must have taken ages
