Peacock and Perfect Pearls....Perfect!

Hi Dreamers!
I wanted to share another Perfect Pearls project with you.  I used the new Blockheads Proud as a Peacock stamp set. 


Materials List:
Stamps: Blockhead Paper Arts Proud as a Peacock
Perfect Pearls Pastels set
Perfect Medium
Galaxy Gold Pigment Ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Gold Ribbon
Black and Metallic Cardstocks




Stamp the background Peacock stamp with Perfect Medium on black CS and Gold Paper.  Add the Perfect Pearls powder and push into the ink with a brush and brush off the excess.  Layer the black  piece with the metallic CS's.    Cut a strip from the stamped Gold paper.  Glue the gold paper over the black stamped piece.  Tie a gold ribbon around the layers.  Stamp the peacock with Gold pigment ink and emboss with clear powder.  Cut out the peacock and add to the card with 3-D Zots.





Well, wasn't that fun.  Don't you love the glittery shimmer of the Perfect Pearls?!   The metallic CS is just yummy with the Perfect Pearls.  The Blockhead's Technique Challenge is currently running.    Stop over and link up your project!   Have a great day!!  Love ya.
Karen

The silhouetted peacock looks perfect in front of the delicately shimmery feathered background. :)
