Plucking a Peacock

My card today features another Deep Red stamp. This one can be found HERE. I love how this came together using distress inks from Ranger. I had to Google a peacock feather to get the color pattern down but I think I could have used any color combo and it would look cool with this stamp.

The patterned paper and ribbon are by My Mind's Eye the cardstock is by Coredinations and Colorbok. The watercolor paper that I stamped on is by Royal and Langnickel. I heat embossed the peacock image with Versa Mark ink and Stampin Up embossing powder. For the image I used a blending tool in mostly green and then put some blues in down the center. The darkest blue Faded Jeans is in the center of the eye. After I die cut the image and a matte cardstock, which the second I inked while it was still in the die, I sprayed them with water to get that watercolor look.

The decorative edge is also a Spellbinders die that I embossed and placed rhinestones in the center hole. The sentiment is a rub-on by Kasier Crafts and the butterfly is a Recollections brad.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Be sure to visit A Cherry on Top for 400 different stamps made by Deep Red Stamps.
