Poised Peacock Tag

Hello, Friends and hope you're enjoying the sunny days ahead. If the local temperatures are rising above high 90' F and above I hope you have a way to stay cool. As soon as I step outside I wish I had a BIG fantastic fan handy, you know the size of a peacock's train!

Taken at the Milwaukee Zoo in 2016.
I've never seen a peacock actually fan themselves with their feathers, but if I were one I'd certainly try!

Anyway, this all leads up to the beautiful Poised Peacock stamp set from Stampendous that I was fortunate to get from them in my design team goodie box for the April 2017 Stampendous Catalog (click to browse any of their catalogs online). 

Here's my tag project using the stamp set and a few more goodies from Stampendous! All the details are at the end of my post if you see something that interests you.
