The theme for the 9 ATC Group is Rust.
I used a faux rust technique. First I ran black card stock in an embossing folder through a Cuttlebug to create the peacock image. Dabbed on brown craft paint and while the paint was wet, sprinkled on cinnamon. Pressed the cinnamon into the paint with my finger and let it dry.
After the faux rust had dried, I used sand paper to highlight the raised areas of the embossed image.
Next I added some green metallic ink to the peacock eyes, adhered a tiny red rhinestone to a "gold" metallic embellishment and glued to the image. Finished by adding some decorative ribbon to the bottom of the act.
