(2018 c7) Hero Arts, Layered Peacock, Distress Oxide


I used my NEW Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock CM126 today with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger .  The second layer on the tail was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with a blue WOW embossing powder, the third layer on body and tail used gold EP. I cut a mask for the peacock & then sponged the background with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger  and spritzed with water to activate. Then cut out with Spellbinders Mega Ovals.



The right boarder was cut with the retired Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Triple Scallop E8-003 die (but it can be found on Ebay).   Then I gave it sparkle by covering with Zig Wink Of Stella.  The sentiment was stamped with a 2016  Recollections Valentine Flamingo Stamp & Die set from Michaels (these sets discontinue yearly, but can be found on places like Ebay & Etsy).  The feathers on the upper left were cut with Little B Die Autumn LIB-Die-100466.  The feathers on the right were cut with Xcut Die Mini Peacock Feather XCU 503075.

    This is gorgeous!

  2. What a stunning card! I was really drawn in by the elegant color palette, which I feel works so nicely with the peacock. And wow! What amazing detail you added to your beauty of a bird! I love the heat embossing you did and how you brought such shine and shimmer to the feathers. This is masterfully done and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
