Perfect Peacock...

Morning all!....I've been having a play with Perfect Peacock, love it! It has such lovely fine detail and embosses beautifully. Although this is one of those stamps that l loved on first sight, but thought hmmm, how would l use it. But after seeing a gorgeous sample at "Inspire Create Share" l decided that l really did need it and this was my first chance to ink it up and play!
I embossed the Peacock with versamark & Black E/P and used my SU markers for colouring and a blender pen to soften the layers.
I mostly blocked in the colours, adding some shading with the blender and some highlights with the white chalk marker. It's such a simple process to create shading and highlights. It's a little hard to see the "Dazzling Details" l added to the wing and plume, but they are super pretty and sparkly IRL (just not easy to photograph)..:0)
