Tangled Peacock Card

When I saw this stamp on the Harlequin Fragments sheet I immediately could see Peacock feathers although I'm sure it will bring different patterns to mind for others.
With Seedless Preserve Distress Ink, I rubbed it onto an acrylic block and lightly sprayed with water then placed the stamp onto it to pick up the ink. When on the card it slightly spreads.
I repeated with Mown Lawn and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks stamping randomly on the card.
The Peacock stamp is from Tangled Peacocks
When I had stamped and heat embossed the Peacock I placed tape around the image so that the water colouring with Distress inks didn't run and I had a white frame around it. I picked out the blue for mounting onto.
Many thanks for visiting

I agree it does look like peacock feathers Debbie. Such a beautiful card, I love this Peacock on the wall.

The background is beautifully subtle & I love the way it really echoes the peacock's 'eyes' - like Clare I'd love some more info on the technique. The use of the claret ribbon to enhance the 'eyes' of the tail & pick out the seedless preserves of the background is masterful & I particularly like the way you created a crisp border around the peacock scene by your masking.
