Nouveau Peacocks

Hello everyone,  I hope you are doing well.     The weather has warmed up a little allowing us to work outside, we are weeks behind, so keeping very busy.   

If you like Nouveau designs you will love Chocolate Baroque's gorgeous new Fleur Nouveau and Nouveau Lovebirds stamp sets.    My card today features a beautiful Peacock design from Fleur Nouveau again using a favorite colour combination :)


The background is a 'mop up' sheet with Dylusions inks with Gold Glimmermist sprayed over top.   I added pattern using TCW Peacock Feathers stencil and Distress inks.   The top corners from Poppy Meadow and the Bubbles from Decorative Edges were stamped with Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.   The beautiful Peacocks were tamped with Cobalt Archival ink and coloured with Prisma pencils.  I added glitter and half pearls as well.


Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirley

  8. Stunning Shirley, such wonderful colours as always. I love this stamp and think it makes a great anniversary card, with the colours you've used - Emerald or Sapphire. I'm glad the weather has warmed up for you there and you are managing to get out into the garden.

  11. Hi Shirley! I bought a bag of Glad bulbs and finally think I might be able to plant them. The Tulips will bloom soon, and the Magnolia is blooming, weeks late. River is constantly coming in with mucky paws, I guess that means Spring has finally arrived!
    One of my favourite things about your cards, is that you use Cobalt ink rather than black, and how you dress up your stamping with gel pens or what you did here with the peacocks and the glitter. Just beautiful !!

  15. Beautifully done Shirley. Normally I would not like this color combination but this is gorgeous.

  16. I love the way you used so many different stamp sets to compose such a cohesive design - not to mention the peacock feathers stencilling. The colours are exquisite & I love the way you used both dark & light teal pearls. Those corner stamps work brilliantly as frames & I love the way the spots (peacock's crests, bubbles, pearls, dots in the stencilled background) are a recurring motif throughout the whole design.
