OMG I am in love with a Beautiful Peacock. It comes from the aptly named Beautiful Peacock stamp set which is one of the free choices with a £45 order from the new Sale-a-Bration brochure.

I stamped the body of the peacock in Bermuda Bay ink onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock 5” by 3¼”. Using Lemon Lime Twist ink I stamped the image of a ‘spray of feathers/leaves’ twice to form the tail of the bird. I then stamped the ‘flourish’ style image in Bermuda Bay ink to give the effect of a full, luxurious tail.

I stamped the dotty image in Pacific Point ink before randomly stamping the ‘tiny flower’ image in the same Pacific Point ink. The sentiment from the same stamp set was added in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I felt the peacock needed ‘grounding’ and added a swipe of Smoky Slate using the light Stampin’ Blend.

I added the stamped panel to a layer of Pacific Point cardstock 5⅛” by 3⅜” using Tombow Liquid Adhesive before adhering the whole panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
