Beautiful Peacock - Beautiful Friend

Today's card is another created using the gorgeous Beautiful Peacock Sale-a-Bration stamp set. You cannot buy this set, you can only earn it for FREE with any purchase of £45. You can find full details of all the available FREE products in the brochure shown in my left-hand sidebar - just click on the photo.

I started this card by stamping the Peacock with Island Indigo ink in the top left of my White layer. I then used Soft Sky ink to stamp the first of the flourishes three times down the panel. Next, I inked up the dots stamp using Real Red and randomly stamped this over the flourishes. Lastly, I used Island Indigo ink again to stamp the second flourish three times.

I then decided that the card needed a little more dimension, so I stamped the Peacock again onto a piece of White card. I cut out the body by hand, added Dimensionals and layered it on top of the first one.

The sentiment was cut out using the Layering Circle framelits. I stamped some of the sweet little flowers around it, before adding it to the card.

Although difficult to see, I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen all over the Peacock and on the Island Indigo 'leaves'. This gives a lovely shimmer when it catches the light.
