Beautiful Peacock!

Hey there! Tonight I have a card that I've been itching to make ever since I saw this peacock image! This beautiful bird came from Gina K Designs, "Pretty as a Peacock" stamp set--isn't it just gorgeous?! I think I fell in love at first sight! ;) Since the peacock image has a lot of detail I decided to color him with Prismacolor colored pencils. Now, that gorgeous flourish you see behind him is a Layers of Color art stencil called "Natural Flourish" and doesn't it just accent the peacock beautifully! I painted the stencil using my new favorite medium, Tim Holtz's Distress Crackle Paint in "Peeled Paint," then highlighted it a bit with a white gel pen that I partly went over in orange. Kristine Breach gave me that idea in her beautiful project here. I sprayed the stencil with removable spray adhesive and was so pleased with how clear the image turned out (if you've ever stenciled using acrylic paint you know that it can be tricky to get a clear image). Well, I thought the bird was so beautiful that I just couldnt' help but give him some lace and pearls for accents! :)

I'm entering this card into the StampTV Color Challenge for this past Monday: to use turquoise, green and orange on a project.

Thanks so much for looking! I love reading everyone's comments--I feel so encouraged by all of you who do. Thank you! :)
