Inky peacock


Hi, I hope everyone is having a relaxing Easter break. I've been catching up on sleep and housework!

I bought this stamp a little while ago as I've always been fascinated by peacocks.
I'm going to link up to a few challenges.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has a winged things challenge, while at 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge the theme is animal antics.
At Addicted to Stamps & More the theme is anything goes.
At Allsorts Challenge Blog the theme is birds and feathers.

Materials used: Inkadinkadoo stamp; gold versacolor ink; Jade pearl lustre embossing powder; distress inks; twinkling H2O's.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

  4. Cathy, sorry I've been MIA in visiting. Just Life getting in my way. Zipped out tonight to see what was going on, and WOW is all I can say! I'm loving THIS peacock, but I saw the gold embossed one, and it is DOUBLE WOW! I'm really liking that gold with the Twink H20. How very striking it is, and you did a wonderful project with it. I liked the painted one very much as well, but that gold emboss sent that peacock into Orbit. Well done. TFS, Happy Easter & many hugs. I will get back to enjoy those cards I've missed.

    1. I was going out earlier so in my rush I failed to notice you have also become a follower so thank you so much for that also. I have looked at some more of your cards and they are fantastic. The other one which really caught my eye was the stencilled ferns and that beautiful blue butterfly which is really striking and so elegant. x

  19. OMG!!! I have an A4 sheet of Graphicus Peacock stamps (aka Chocolate Baroque) and I have been playing with them for a few years but was never happy with the colours so they rarely made it onto a card. The colours on this one and the gold one are what I have been trying to achieve but have only just realised it - thank you Cathy I am going to try again with those stamps and be more daring! Absolutely gorgeous Karen xx
