Peacock Summer Party

Good morning and Happy Wednesday, if you squint you can nearly see the weekend lol. Today's card features some of the new Peacock Stamps from Chocolate Baroque, pop over and have a look as they are on special offer this month! 

I've used a backing paper from the Peacock Summer PArty Cd. I've stamped the peacock on Neenah cardstock and coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers. I've stamped the edges with a feather stamp from the same stamp set using distress inks. I've matted the image and the backing paper on card coloured with distress inks. I've added some die cut branches and blossoms die cut with spellbinders dies.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
CD Sunday: fine plumage
Paper Playtime: anything goes
Sweet Pea Stampers: birds of a feather

Thanks for calling by today, if you've got a minute pop over and check out the Chocolate Baroque DT blog, its chockablock with gorgeous projects from my lovely teamies

  2. This is beautiful Claire. A gorgeous image and I love the way you have softened the edges with ink and stamps. The die cut branches and flowers reflect the branch in the main image so well.
    Thank you for joining us in the weeks challenge.
