Timeless Tuesday: Create A Scene

This week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge is hosted by Betty Wright - you can find the post HERE.  She has challenged you to make a scene on your card.  My scene is actually quite small, but I definitely put a lot of time into it!

My card base is Bashful Blue CS.  For the large panel, I used a Basic Gray piece matted with a Very Vanilla piece.  I went around the edges of these 2 pieces with a gold krylon pen.  On the base, I added some gold corner stickers.

On a separate piece of Vanilla, I embossed and cut using a brass emboss template from the Touch of Grace store (the Anja Frame Stencil #FE6122).  I also went around those edges with the gold pen. and added some pearls I got from Michael's.  Inside the frame, I did some sponging with Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss inks to create the scene, and I also stamped some grass in Mellow Moss ink (misc Michael's stamp).

I stamped the peacock from Strut Your Stuff in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Gina K Luxury Ivory CS, coloured with my Copics, and cut out.  It was mounted on with Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
