Peacock


Created for the TMTA Challenge. The background uses the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique in Vintage Photo & Pine Needles. This was then stamped with a postcard background in Vintage Photo. Next I tore a dictionary defination of Peacock, coloured it with the same inks and attached to the base of the card, then stamped and cut out the nature quote coloured and attached to the right side. A real Peacock feather was added, then some metal embellishments to finish.
