Bundle Monster has this peacock feather stamp. I own it. And it will not stamp (it isn’t engraved deep enough). I am too lazy to email them and request a replacement (although I really should, I keep meaning to test ALL THE STAMPS and then email them for the ones that don’t work. I know of at least two plates of mine that just won’t stamp) ANYWAY. I wanted to use it and I can’t. So I made my own version.
The stamp I did use was another bundle monster, just a criss-cross pattern from plate 209. I then added a gold and then a dot of turquoise and then a blue dot at the apex of each crossed bit. It took an hour. Too many dots. And it STILL doesn’t look as good as the initial stamp! But I wanted it. So I did it. The end.
The base is a three-color gradient (teal-blue-purple), which was kinda fun to put together. Holo gradients are always fun!
~ Teal: A England – St. George
~ Blue: A England – Tristam
~ Purple: Gothic Gala – Vallis Sanguine
~ Gold: Essie – Penny Talk
~ Turquoise: Petites Color Fever – Figi
Enjoy the peacocky goodness! Tomorrows post is a bit more subdued 🙂
