Peacock



   This week the challenge at Creative Corner has feathers for the theme, so I chose this peacock swirl die from Tattered Lace. I cut it out from white card, coloured it using Promarkers, applied dry glitter to the tail and wing and then matted it onto paper printed using the Artylicious Peacock Summer Party CD ROM from Elusive Images (now known as Chocolate Baroque) and cut it out.
   I wrapped turquoise ribbon round white core'dinations cardstock and matted and layered it onto turquoise mirri and white card. I then attached the peacock so that it stood on the ribbon. In the top left hand corner I attached a bow along with a small feather and in the opposite corner a peel off sentiment. Finally I added six small gems to the peacocks head feathers.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - anything goes

   Digi Choosday - cool blues
   Winter Wonderland - glitter and shine
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
