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?
