Proud Peacock

When I was growing up, my grandparents had peacocks on our family farm.  They are beautiful but very noisy birds! I can remember waking up to the sound of the peacocks screaming “help! help!” (That’s really what it sounds like!)  And they start with the sun coming up!  But when I saw this set – I just had to have it for the memories of my grandparents (not the peacocks!) 

I paired this set up with a technique on Splitcoast – Ruffled Ribbon Border.


Look closely and you will see that I stamped the peacock twice and popped up his body (similar to the sail on my Sail Away post.)  His beautiful tail is colored with Stampin’ Write Markers.
