Used linen card from Paper Mill Direct to add texture to the background. Although it shows black it was a luscious Forest Green Dimensions paste from Sweet Poppy Stencils which I put through the Peacock Stencil. it dries to a lovely dark green - almost black. Coloured the peacock eyes silver and added a jewel. Simple matt and layering to finish.
here are the links to the paste and stencil:
