LiM - peacock feather

Hi fellow bloggers
the fringe is now finished and I have caught up with non craft stuff so can now get back to crafting, on the blog and visiting my blog buddies. :)
This weeks LiM challenge was to use the peacock feather and at first I had to have a think about how  to do that as I don't have a peacock stamp. Anyway I decided to use the colours on a feather diecut using a die I have had for a while and is underused.
I used distress ink pads dusky concord and peacock feathers and the greeny colour came from a mixed colour pad that I hadn't stored properly so the colours became one!! oops! Still luckily it is a colour that meets the need for a peacock colour. I spritzed with a light gold mica and used rub ons in matching colours to make the 'eye' area of the feather. I also used dusky concord for the sentiment. The photo looks a bit 'bleached' as I had to use a flash as it was very overcast here. Happy crafting
