Peacock Power

This Peacock is from this Hero Arts set. And the paper and card is from Stampin Up. Love SU products. Their papers and cards all co-ordinate beautifully with their inks and markers. I used the beautiful Taken with Teal colour on the peacock which is the same colour as the Nesties scalloped card. SU are discontinuing Taken with Teal so I'm going to have to stock up before it goes.

Shame the sentiment isn't straight - aaargh! I need gridlines on my acrylic block so I can line it up better.

I used teal coloured gems to accent that sweet peacock's tail feathers and headdress. Wished the scalloped rectangle was larger though. I like using Nestabilities dies but they need to have slightly bigger sizes I think.

Well today will be another day in the sun, yay! A new Italian cafe has opened up down by the river in Taunton. It's called Olio & Farino, it's really cool has lovely food and coffee there. Think I might pay another visit this afternoon and pretend I'm Italian for half an hour :)

Thanks for stopping by ...
