First of all today, I want to wish my gorgeous girl, Annika a very happy 8th birthday. I can’t believe we are so blessed to have had you for 2920 days in our lives already!
To commemorate this special day, I wanted to share with you some of her favourite colours and they can be found on one very beautiful bird that I grew up with in our neighbourhood living so close to the Cataract Gorge in Launceston, Tasmania.
No, I don’t live in Tassie anymore, but I still have the most vivid memories as a child growing up in such a gorgeous environment and these stunning birds wandering around.
Yes, it is the peacock!
I have created this using the Flower Patch Stamp Set and the Flower Fair framelits dies which can be purchased as bundle saving you a huge 15%.
I also used the Owl punch.
I should have photographed him before I put it into the frame to stop the glare off the glass, but I think you can see him clearly enough.
I used Pool Party as the base of the feathers, then Pistachio Pudding then Bermuda Bay. The body of the peacock is Pacific Point cardstock and I sponged the edges with the same colour ink and a sponge dauber. The circles are punched from Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and a Pacific Point heart with a tiny Bermuda Bay dot.
Rhinestones were added to the feathers for a bit of bling as these birds are such a showy animal!
Please leave a message to let me know what you think of my design.
