Beautiful Peacocks!

Hello, Friends!

Recently I made a set of peacock notecards for a special relative who loves these beautiful birds!  I do love the blues and purples in their feathers, but peacocks in general are not my favorite.  I think it may have to do with a childhood memory of visiting an aunt and uncle who raised peacocks, some of whom were not fond of inquisitive children!  I remember an especially ornery bird who “attacked” my brother during one visit.  Now paper peacocks are as close as I care to be to the real thing!

IMG_2582For these notecards I used paper from and old Recollections paper pack from Michaels.  The feather cut came from the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge and the peacock cut is from French Manor.  I placed the images on a simple frame from Art Philosophy by Close To My Heart.  Finally, I added a simple rhinestone bling as an accent.
