Fresh and Fab

Hey everybody, I played along two challenge today. The first is the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Blog and the second is Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World. 

 Here is a close up of the peacock. The stamp is from Wplus9 and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I stamped the peacock image using Versamark and SU’s Basic Gray ink.  Then embossed the peacock image with clear embossing powder. Colored the feather blue and sponged SU’s Bashful Blue around them. Finally adding  rhinestones. Isn’t the peacock gorgeous. Love the Magical Moments stamp set from Wplus9.
If you like to play along the challenges then click on the pictures and they will take you to their blogs 🙂 Here is the Freshly Made sketch #15 and the Tuesday Trigger photo for you.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend:)
