Peacock Card with Distress Oxide Inks

Hello!  TGIF!  It is so rainy here, but I am looking forward to the break of the weekend.  I would like to share a card I made for a mix of challenges, including a brand new one!  Scroll down for more information.

I used my stamp positioner to first stamp the peacock image in the three tones of blue Distress Oxide ink.  Then, I inked just the edges of the stamp in black Distress Oxide (which, of course, is actually grey, given that it oxidizes a little) and stamped again.  I really loved the rich look of this.  I added Nuvo Glitter drops to the tail.

Supplies: Hero Arts Peacock stamp, Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans and Black Soot, Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Thanks sentiment, Nuvo Crystal Drops in Clear Glitter, other items from my stash.

I was inspired by these challenges:
The Library challenge - Pride and Prejudice **brand new. I was inspired by the cover of the book
SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesdays 324-325 Anything Goes

I hope you will have a wonderful day!  Thanks for visiting!

You can find me on facebook or pinterest, too.

This is definitely a winner. Very different style for you, and I love it, Putting the black around the edges is very unique and clever. It really adds to your card. Have a nice weekend. We are driving to Toronto (3 hours) for my granddaughter's first birthday party.

very cool, like the way you are doing the backgrounds with your oxides, the black gives it a great framing!

Very artsy look to your card and the effects of the inks are fabulous x

Very fancy looking! Love the black edging.

Thanks for your kind words that it is good I am not dead. I am so tired today that I am not sure I agree that it is a good thing. ha! Of course I bought lots of good things there at the convention... mostly stamps and a few dies that matched stamps and a die to make a shaped card. It seemed like such a small pile on the table compared to the amount of money it was. LOL... oh but it was cling mount stamps so that of course is why the pile wasn't heaping. That, and I'm not a zillionaire.
