Golden peacock


Hi, I decided to try another peacock with gold embossing this time.
I used the same technique as last time and blended distress inks over the embossed image,
then added some twinkling H2O's to the tail feathers.

I used some snippets of black and gold in my layers so I'm popping into the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

I''m slipping a 2nd entry into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is winged things, and also into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme is animal antics.

Materials used: Inkadinkadoo stamp; gold ink and embossing powder; distress inks; twinkling H2O's.

Enjoy the rest of the Easter break and thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
