I decided I would make a card for Alphabet Challenge which has got round to the letter P and the the theme of Peacocks, Pelicans or other birds, what did I do ? got out a Polar Bear stamp LOL ! After I finally got my brain in gear I found this old Kanban stamp , I think I had bought the set for the other stamps on the sheet. I made an Inky background with Creative Chemistry inks, a bit of splattering and some stamped leaves from the same set. The peacock is stamped with Cobalt archival ink and coloured with mermaid lagoon distress ink. I then stencilled some sparkle medium through a swirly stencil, coloured another piece of cardstock with the mermaid ink as I couldn't find any toning card and dyed a piece of seam binding . I'm not a big fan of peacocks (is that a pun ?) as we had one who took up residence for a while in our small close, they make a terrible mess and an even worse noise!
