White Peacock from Chocolate Baroque

Hi there folks, my second post of the day and this time my project features the gorgeous new Peacock stamps from Chocolate Baroque? They are absolutely scrummy and my card today features one of the stamps from Peacock Parade. I have a really vivid memory of a beautiful white peacock sat on a branch at twilight, his feathers really seemed to glow in the dim light and I wanted to try and capture the effect.

I began by creating the background using distress inks (pumice stone, walnut stain, picket fence and tumbled glass) and overstamped with the feather from Tangled Peacock and embossed with WOW white EP. I stamped the peacock image on white card and embossed with white EP and added colour with distress markers and lots of water. I've added some lace and ribbon from my stash and a little paper flower made with my tattered pine cone die.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine: dies/punches
Crazy Amigo: distress inks/stains etc
Creative Card Crew: punches/dies
Ooh La La: inspired by nature
Tuesday Throwdown: embossing
WOW embossing powder: nature

Don't forget to check out the Chocolate Baroque DT blog as my teamies have created some gorgeous projects with the new stamps.

    Aren't embossing powders great for watercolour resist?

  10. Very striking indeed - especially with the way you coloured the image panel background to really show off the white peacock. Elegantly classy & I love your matting.

  11. Absolutely stunning, and so different to see a white peacock rather than the more usual greens and blues. Love your little flower too. Thanks for sharing with us at Ooh La La Creations
