Please let me know if you have any questions regarding my Special Occasions Royal Peacock projects.  Be sure to check out my earlier post today showcasing additional Royal Peacock cards.  I have had so much fun playing with different papers, inks, and color combinations for this suite of products.  Just didn’t want to quit until my curiosity was satisfied.

Have fun stamping… I do…

    OMG Katy, these are amazing. Makes me think I made a mistake in not purchasing that stamp and die. On the watercolor, did you watercolor before embossing with the subtle folder, or after?

    1. Katy Post author

      Thanks so much, Lynn! The dry embossing with the Subtle folder was my very last step. The panel just seemed to need a little more detail, LOL! And, it is not too late to add this gorgeous bird to your stash collection (wink, wink!)

  2. Rosanne Mulhern

    Katy, both projects are equally beautiful. I love how each color combination gives a totally different vibe. Your inside detail is wonderful too!

  3. Debbie Mageed

    Oh, Katy, when you love something, you REALLY love it! These show just how much it SHOULD be loved. Perfectly done – as always!!

  4. Jennifer Michalski

    Katy, you ruled the roost with the gorgeous peacock cards 🙂 Each one is lovelier than the next. Thanks for sharing.

    When I saw this peacock in the catalog, I knew you would do something spectacular. And… thank you for mentioning the back of the card. It’s perfect!
