I have to confess I’m not a fan of this stamp set. I bought it in the suite bundlke last pre-order as I love all the accessories and embellishments which go with it, I mean how can you not love those foil sheets they are lush!
So sadly Royal Peacock has not seen much ink, even on this card I only used one stamp.
For the background I embossed some of the gorgeous Pretty Peacock Foil Sheet with the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder, which looks stunning. I then used the largest die in the Stitched Nested Labels dies to have somewhere to add my sentiment and highlight the delicate detail in the peacock die cut.
I stamped my greeting in Bermuda Bay which I think looks great with this foil but use Pretty Peacock if you prefer. I then finished the card off with some Pretty Peacock Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock collection.
This card is not my favourite but its made me think I need to go and order some more foil sheets while I still can.
I loved the Noble Peacock Suite of products straight away, but it was more the gorgeous foiled designer paper and the ribbon which drew me in, I wasn’t too fussed for the peacocks if I’m honest. I used the one code for the whole suite when I ordered, mainly because I’m lazy! I’m glad I did through because I love this peacock now I’ve had a play and have some more ideas brewing with what to do with it.
This quick card uses two pieces of foiled card measuring 12.4cm x 8.5cm to create the two layers to create the background.
The peacock was stamped first in Pretty Peacock and then the tail detail was added with Old Olive. To fill in the face and belly of the peaock I took n aqua painter and gently coaxed some of the stamped ink into the white areas, this did leave it a little blury but I still like the effect.
I finished the card with a greeting stamped onto the second smallest of the Stitched Nested Label Dies and a little touch of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Ribbon which I adore.
