Plumage Background


Hi bloggers!  I just thought it made sense to have a background to go with the Proud Peacock set so introducing the Plumage Background!   This background can be nipped apart to use smaller sections of it or used as a whole background as I have done here.  It has been designed to look like peacock feathers but in a circular pattern.  You can ink through the die to add more colour and detail if desired.  I have backed it with Pixie powders here for a lovely intense colour.  If you think this would make a nice addition to your craft stash, take a chance and leave a comment on this post.  This one may just be going home with you if you do!  That is all for today, but we have a couple more days to share.  All for now, Sue x
