Pretty As A Peacock
Happy Wednesday!!! The week is half over already. Now where is this month going?? February just seemed to fly by and now March is doing the same thing.
I just love this image from The Stamping Bug. Ironically, I found it during a VSN stamping weekend a few years back. Another stamper had used the image and I just had to know who made it and where to get it. Ever have one of those moments? I haven't regretted it since.
I inked up an long retired Stampin Up! background first in turquoise ink and stamped that on the card. Then, inking up my peacock, I started in on coloring it with my prismacolor markers. I know most people use copics now, but I'm in love with my prismacolor's. Once the coloring was done, I stippled some turquoise ink around the edges before layering and adding matching brads. Once that was done, I popped it up over some Stampin Up! apricot ribbon and added a silver paper clip saying & bling to the feathers to finish everything off.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great rest of the week.
