Perfect Peacock - So Worth the Wait...

When I first started stamping as a customer with Stampin' Up! there was a retired stamp set with a beautiful peacock in it that I had just missed out on.  I guess that was about 10 years ago.  Well, the Perfect Peacock stamp was so worth the wait!

  • Pistachio Pudding
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Basic Black
  • Whisper White
Tools / Extras:
  • Candy Dots - Brights
  • StazOn ink - Jet Black (for stamping on Whisper White)
  • Scallop Oval punch
  • Large Oval punch
  • Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack - flower
  • Stampin' Sponges, Dimensionals, Glue Dot
I had seen some cards using the masking technique and line art flower images, and thought the Perfect Peacock would be...well...perfect with this technique!

Tips - Don't put your color in the center of the card stock.  With art, off center is usually better.  Also, just sponge from top down and from down up to let the colors mix where they meet.

Happy Stampin'
