Purple Peacock (CC262)

Betty is the hostess for the Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com. She asked me to make a sample for this week's challenge. I'm so honored!! The colors are: Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence, Old Olive and any neutral. Her "dessert" this week is to use swirls in our designs. I used two kinds of swirls. First, I stamped the Orchid panel with the swirl from "Trendy Trees"; then, I embossed with the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder. The peacock was stamped with Rich Razzleberry, and the tail was colored in with the Orchid and Olive Markers; then I dabbed the designs with a Two-Way Glue Pen and added Fine Cosmo Glitter. The ribbon is from the Holiday Mini Catalog (retired). I used Ice Circles Rhinestone Brads to finish it off. Everything except the embossing folder is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!! By the way, this is for Tuesday!!
