Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #6

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.  

I have a design today for Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge #6.   I used stamps from their beautiful Peacock Parade set.

The background was created using Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed Distress Inks, water and an acrylic block.   I also blended both inks over the TCW Peacock Feathers stencil.   Next, I stamped  peacock feather designs with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.   

The main image was stamped with Cobalt Archival ink, coloured with Inktense pencils, highlighted with Gelly Roll pens, cut out and attached.   I also added Stickles.



And below is the challenge inspiration photo.  We would love it if you could join us at Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge #6 for a chance to win a £15 gift voucher at Chocolate Baroque.


Thanks for your visit and have a great day!

You have such a great eye for colour Shirely, the background is beautifully done and the way you have highlighted the peacock with the hints of pinky purple really makes it pop from the card.

If Mr Peacock could speak Shirley he would be saying "How beautiful am I". You have displayed him to perfection.

This is a beautiful peacock Shirley and love the colours for this challenge. The background stencilling and stamping is so pretty too and the touches of plum work so well on the feathers, and you have managed to use all the colours. x
