Stylised Peacock made from Heart Stamps

Having seen a snail in one of Leonie's stamp sets (see HERE), I saw the makings of a peacock in this set (Altered Hearts).
Stamp the heart fan from Leonie’s altered hearts set eight times on black coated card. Stamp in Versamark and heat emboss with silver embossing powder.
Fussy cut the shapes.
Colour the heart fans using a Versamark pen and blue and peacock green mica powders.
Glue them together to form the shape of a peacock’s tail.
Stamp the long heart with the swirls in the same manner.
Colour in the same way using gold and blue mica powders. Add gold mica to the centre of the peacock’s tail.
Fussy cut the additional heart and add it to the tail to create the peacock’s body and head.
Trim a piece of stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Trim a piece of the Great Lakes designer paper to the same size. Use the circle die from the nested heart scribbles set in the centre of the designer paper and glue the outer piece to the stencil card.
Use the same die on black card and add the outer circle to the stencil card to create an inner frame.
Add the ‘peacock’ to the centre of the frame and mat onto the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.

To finish, add three of Leonie’s Word stickers.
