Friendship Card Using Peacock Die | Sizzix

Wednesday, 5 July 2017

One of the dies that I had received in my second DT kit from Sizzix was this thinlits die set - Peacock designed by Pete Hughes. I have been procastinating big time putting this die to use. I was kind of intimidated to use this die all this time, don't know why, maybe because it is so beautiful that I had some doubts if I would be able to do justice to it. :)  But last week, I decided to give it a go and see how my card turns out with it.

Here's how it looks:-


I wanted to keep the card very clean and simple, especially so with this die cut, because it looks so beautiful in itself. Cluttering the background would take away the spotlight from the peacock ! 
This die set contains a total of 7 pieces of die- One main body, three sizes of wings, two varieties of tiny feathers and one eye die. We need to assemble the die cut pieces together to form a peacock. 
I decided to die cut the pieces using Canson Montval water colour paper and then add colours of my choice using Zig brush pens to get a lovely watercolor look. If you are in a hurry, you can even die cut these from the coloured card stock.

The left-hand side corner of the card base was inked using distress ink- spun sugar and the sentiment( from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps-Big Treble) was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I LOVE that sentiment !! 
I wanted the sentiment to look more prominent, so I quickly poured some Zing Clear Embossing Powder over it and heat embossed it. This is a great way to make your sentiment look more prominent. 

The assembled die cut peacock was then adhered over the card base and added some musical notes by doodling them next to the peacock. 

That's all. I love the way it has turned out.
