Elegant Peacock


I wanted to make a card with the beautiful peacock die by Sizzix:

I spritzed some tissue paper with ink sprays and once it was dry, scrunched it up before adhering it to some cardstock.  I cut a square panel from the card and dabbed through a stencil on to it with some sparkle paints from Imagination craft.  I then die cut the peacock from a range of coloured cards including gold mirri and put it together.  The sentiment is from MFT.  The panel was matted on some more gold mirri to add to the overall design.

I hope you like it!  It has a lot of shimmer and texture in real life :)

I will link this card up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is Birds of a Feather and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we have been asked to add a sentiment.  Finally, I shall link up at Happy Little Stampers January, Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

Thank you for stopping by!
