Some of my creations start out with just an idea in my head, that's how this one started. I wanted to try this technique with the peacock stamp. I bought it last fall and finally used it. For the peacock, I inked the stamp first with Versamark, then Pear ink, and finally rolled the stamp in the Pacifica ink. I stamped it on white cardstock, added clear embossing powder and heat set it. By inking with Versamark first, I only had to stamp the image once instead of color ink followed by Versamark. After that, I spent a very long time cutting it out (and questioning my sanity). I random stamped the feather in Versamark and Versamark and Pacfica ink on the Pacifica cardstock; used clear embossing powder and heat set. I sponged a touch of Pear ink on to the center of the feathers using the emboss resist technique To give the peacock a bit more sparkle, I used a bunch of tiny blue and green sparkles.
