When I got this stamping plate, one of the designs I was most excited to use was the peacock feather. So here we are! And since the stamp is using a metallic polish (you can get more metal-y than gold) I figured it worked ok for the Day 8 prompt!
I was initially going to do an underwater bit of art, but it occurred to me that I have done a teal-glitter-background with shells or fish twice in the last few months, so I went feathers instead!
The actual design does not fit across three nails (in fact, 90% of it fits on my thumb) but I think it looks fine with the slightly overlapping stretch I went with as well! I also highlighted the central part with teal and purple just for fun.
Some of the more closely-spaced details were lost with this stamp, but I still think it came out nicely. Easy feathers! The teal base was grabbed on a whim, because I think darker colors look nice on short nails.
I should try to freehand some peacock feathers again soon as well. I miss peacocks :-D. Unfortunately, my animal day prompt is already done, but I did consider it!
