Peacock ATCs!

This was one of those projects that started with a vague idea and I just followed where all the trials and mishaps took me! The ATCs aren’t exactly what I had in mind, but I’m still content with what came out of the process!

Peacock ATC set!

I made this ATC set for MarciLB’s ATC Swap over at! I’m also going to be entering them in to Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge “Distress It.”

These are a rather straight forward process, a lot of Cameo sketch pen work and cutting, followed by a lot of coloring!

For the ‘green’ of the peacock’s tail I mixed Peeled Paint & Lucky Clover Distress Oxides on my work surface with some water & used my water brush to paint!

For the ‘stone’ I used Weathered Wood & Pumice Stone Distress Crayons and blended them.

After the Crazing Distress Collage Medium was dry, I used a blending tool to add the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to the surface.

Cut Files:

  • All cut files came from the Silhouette Store.

Product List:

  • Silhouette Cameo & Pen holder with uni-ball gel pen, micro line, with “uni Super Ink.” I seriously love this pen, it makes nice, fine lines, and it holds up to water!
  • Watercolor paper
  • the green background paper is from an OLD K & Company stack from their “Designer Paper” series. And I mean OLD, like probably 2009, and in scrapbook years, that’s ANCIENT!! LOL!!
  • McGill Paper Blossom Tool Kit – Ball Tools
  • Ranger Glossy Accents, water pen (nib)
  • Tim Holtz – round blending tool, Distress Collage Medium: Crazing, Distress Collage Brush, Distress Crayons: Weathered Wood & Pumice Stone, Distress Oxides: Peacock Feathers, and Peeled Paint & Lucky Clover mixed together, Distress Ink: Frayed Burlap, and Distress Marker: Wild Honey
  • Vicki Boutin Acrylic Paint Set 2: “Saltwater Taffy” used
  • PrismaColor Markers (on the flowers)
