Dreams of the East

    I have something totally different for you today.  It something bright and beautiful and, of course, sparkly.
I used Great Impressions H174 Peacock to create this peek into India.

     I began by stamping my peacock onto acrylic with Stazon and then added glitter to the back in layers to get all the colors and detail.  Can I just say I sparkle, my children sparkle, my dogs sparkly, the computer mouse now has glitter permanently embedded into it and my husband who wasn't even home now glitters.

   I cut out my image and mounted it onto a a scalloped oval die cut and then went to down with some Indian themed paper.  I used old Christmas paper for the gold matting.  I love metallic wrapping paper, you can get lots of bang for your buck.

      I usually choose an image that has less detail for this technique but this beautiful peacock just tempting me passed all will power.
