Sketched Peacock New Distress Inks


I finally succumbed to temptation and bought Tim Holtz's new seasonal Spring Distress Inks.  I absolutely lovely Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers blended together.  I used this mask for the background and sponged on both colours.  Then I sprayed some water with a mister spray to blend the colours a bit more.

I then masked off a piece of white card and sponged the centre rectangle with the same colours.  And of course, with peacock feathers I had to add a peacock.  This peacock is a Hero Arts peacock called 'Sketched Peacock'.  I embossed it to make it stand out above.  The sentiment is also from a Hero Arts clear set of stamps.  The bling is just some bling from my bling stash :).

Well I'm hoping to get lots done this weekend in the hope I will have more cards ready for blogging next week.  I'm hoping to enter more challenges too.  I really like taking part because it helps me get inspiration.  As this peacock stamp is one of my oldies that I haven't used in some time, I thought I'd enter this card for the latest challenge at A Blog Named Hero called 'Dust Em off'.

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by ...
