Peacock Butterflies

Here today for the June Bombshell Pin-up challenge. Ms June - Emily - has challenged us to release our inner WILD THING and use animal prints on the project.

I had all sorts of things in my mind with zebra print, and leapord print, but ended up with peacock feathers!
I used the DCWV English Garden paper that had a paper with strips of different designs, two of which had this beautiful peacock strips in it. I then took the Butterfly Queen Butterflies and stamped them on some other paper - cream and royal blue with Versamark. I then embossed with detail gold.  I did this several times and layered some of them using dimensional adhesive to give them a flight look. I also stamped the sentiment from Rise and Shine on a cream cut out shape and also embossed this with the detail gold. I finished it up with a few gold beads... and Voila - Peacock Butterflies!

Now head on over to the Bombshell Stamps Blog and check out all of the other wild creations they have in store for you... And if you enter the challenges, you have a chance to win some rubber. I love winning rubber don't you???!!!

OK, that is it for today... but come on back later this week. With Hubby's birthday, Fathers day and me having gotten a bunch of new stamps lately, I am looking forward to a lot of creativity!!!!


  1. It's gorgeous. I never would have thought of mixing peacock feathers and butterflies, but it sure works!
