Peacock Easel Card

Good morning my lovelies, todays card features one of the scrummy new stamps from Peacock Parade, one of this month's new stamp releases from Chocolate Baroque. I love the bright zingy colours we associate with peacocks but I decided to create a more muted project with a masculine feel so I've used blacks and greys (a bit like the sky here lately lol)

I used a shaped card blank and covered it with papers from the Peacock Summer Party Cd, adding faux stitching around the edges with a black fineline pen. I also covered another card front with the same paper for the front of the easel. I stamped the peacock 3 times with versamark on some pewter card  and embossed with sparkly black embossing powder. You can see the sparkle a little better in this pic

I've decoupaged the image and added some gems in the corners and created a large black bow to prop the easel up. I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A gem of a challenge: male birthday
Dream Valley: fathers day/male theme
Joanna Sheen: fathers day/male theme
Little Claire's: Male theme
Scribbles Designs: Mainly men

Monday morning again so I'm off to work to earn some pennies

  6. I had to smile at this for I was thinking something similar with that very peacock image in terms of layering. Loe the soft elegance of this & I'd definitely class it as masculine too.
