Beautiful Friend

Hi bloggers!  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card using the Rose Bed 3D embossing folder (I just love this one!)  I cut the Priscella die in white and added it to the background with foam.  I used the inner die from it and cut and backed it in white and layered it on the larger base.  Next I cut the peacock from the Proud Peacock set out of white card.  I used Peacock Feather Distress Oxide ink to colour it, with a touch of Blueprint Sketch ink on it belly area.  Next I cut the extra feathers (several times)  I inked each of them with forest moss, peacock feathers and blueprint sketch.  I added a bit of glue to the ends and added them to the peacock body through the open areas left for the feathers.  I  added a white frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles and added the peacock to the side of it.  I cut the sentiment out of teal and black card and shadowed it then glued it to the centre of the die.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are  7"  x   8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, this is stunning, so pretty, the Peacock is one of my favourite birds, and this sample shows the bird off beautifully,on the white backgrounds. I have watched your You Tube on how to make the peacock and would highly recommend it.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue, how inspired to add a vibrant coloured peacock to a white on white card. The result is so pretty.
I have just had a peak of your forthcoming release on pre-order and am absolutely blown away by just how beautiful they are as well as being so different. Can't wait for the posts on the blog to see how you have used them all.
