A White Royal Peacock, plus Alcohol Technique

When you first think of a peacock, you picture the colors of blues and greens.  While researching the peacock for inspiration, I came across this white one. I don't think I have ever seen a white one, it is so beautiful, and for me inspiring.

I have also been wanting to try a new technique, well it's new to me as I don't think I have ever used it before.  Successfully that is!

It's just a watercolor wash, with droplets of alcohol.  This techniques give the card something extra.  

For the embossing powder I tried the new Shimmer White. I know you can not see it in the picture, but it very pretty in person.

Which color do you favor?

Melon Mambo?


Gorgeous Grape (this is the one that's in the video tutorial)
