Sparkly peacock easel card (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with an easel card using one of the beautiful stamps from Peacock Parade. While I just love the gorgeous vibrant colours we all associate with peacocks I decided to use more of a muted colour palette to create a masculine project.


I used a shaped card blank and covered it with papers from the Peacock Summer Party Cd, adding faux stitching around the edges with a black fineline pen. I also covered another card front with the same paper for the front of the easel. I stamped the peacock 3 times with versamark on some pewter card  and embossed with sparkly black embossing powder. You can see the sparkle a little better in this photo:


I've decoupaged the image and added some gems in the corners and created a large black bow to prop the easel up. Hope you're enjoying all the ideas with these beautiful new stamps
Thanks for popping by

  2. I had to smile at this for I was thinking something similar with that very peacock image in terms of layering. Love the soft elegance of this & I'd definitely class it as masculine too.
