Emma's Crafty Challenge #20

I would, firstly, like to apologise for my absence from Blogland. The past few weeks have been extremely busy for me and I have been without internet for parts of the time due to having to do a lot of travelling about. Hopefully, normal service will be resumed by next week. I will explain myself better in another post. Meanwhile ......

Sunday was the start of Emma's Crafty Challenge # 20. Thank you to all of those who entered our previous challenge, the lucky winners will be be announced in a few days time.
The theme for this challenge is
"Birds"
We are being sponsored by Mishelflo Creative Crafting who are generously offering
  a fantastic prize of £20 to spend on anything on her website. The prize includes free postage.

We would love to see your new crafty creations featuring birds of any kind. One of my favourite birds is the peacock. I just love the elegance and colours of this majestic bird.


I matted and layered black textured card and gold mirri. I wrapped around a length of glittered, wire edged ribbon before fixing onto an 8"x 8" card blank. The sentiment is a gold peel off on a Kanban die-cut shape.


I used a Sweet Poppy stencil, and pearlescent paste to create the peacock on textured black card. I dusted over with Mica powders to colour and matted onto gold mirri.


I made three stick pins and used another Kanban die cut to finish off. With the glitter, gold and micas I didn't think the card needed any more embellishing.

Don't forget to pay our fabulous sponsor a visit and have a good look around her webshop for your crafty needs.
I hope you'll pop by the Challenge blog to see the fabulous inspirational creations from the highly talented DT and to check out the rules.
