Peacock butterflies

Well I've had a really inky time this afternoon and tonight and you should see the mess in here! I came across some Starburst stain inks that I've had for several years, I bought them as dabbers by mistake so they got shoved away in the cupboard, anyhow tonight I put some of them into mini misters and used them as sprays, they do have the most glorious shimmer to them!. The Peacock stamp is from a Kanban set and has never seen ink before although I have used the other stamps,it always looked like it would be too much bother to colour but I really like the effect on here, pity the shimmer doesn't show up on here.I made this card for Make my Monday challenge

  1. I LOVE the inkiness of this, Joan! The colors look amazing and I think your peacock image is just fabulous! Thanks for joining us at MMM! :)

  2. What a gorgeous inky effect Joan. The colours are so lovely and the peacock looks lovely stamped on them.
    A very clever way to avoid colouring!
