I love how colorful and vibrant peacock’s are.  I hope this card captures that feeling.

Eye Connect Crafts chipboard is 100% recycled, made in the USA and movable!

Peacock Parts:

  1. Chipboard:  Eye Connect Crafts – Peacock.
  2. Feathers:  Folk Art – Lime Luster with Viva Precious Metal Color (VPMC)- Lime as the second coat.  Using a rain drop stencil, first layer VPMC – Bronze, then using a smaller rain drop layer with VPMC – Turquoise, then apply Martha Stewart – Deep Sea with the end of a paintbrush.  For the smaller feathers (lines):  Spica – Blue, Green, and Lime and Uniball – White.
  3. Body:  Cover with  VPMC – Turquoise, add VPMC – Lime around the throat.  Emboss with embossing folder.
  4. Feet:  Emboss with embossing folder, color with Distress Ink – Walnut Stain.

Peacock Assembly:

  1. Arrange and glue the bigger feathers to the back of the body.
  2. Arrange and glue the smaller feather to the front of the body.  Add glitter glue – light blue to the holes in the base of the feather to cover up the hole and create dimension.
  3. Attach the head to the body with a black brad (for the eye) and glue (to help stabilize).
  4. Attach the feet with tan brads.

Card Assembly:

  1. Card Base:  Canvas Corp – Ivory Card with Burlap, sprayed with Glimmer Mist – French Lime.
