Did some one say Sparkle?
Yes, they did, at Flourishes! I love sparkly and always have! So, I pulled out all of the stops on the peacock. First, I stamped the image and embossed with metallic blue. Then I oversprayed the image with Tattered Angels and colored with my copics. I used handmade Japanese paper with metallic gold swirls, antique metallic lace, Swarovski crystals, bronze UTEE, an antique beaded flower, glitter paper. I told you- I love sparkly! But, what I really like, is the patina that old shiney things aquire. And that's what I was going for here. I wanted it to look like you just found this buried treasure, that has only gotten more beautiful in time.
I used the sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces, and was really inspired by all of Chelsea's details. I also thought this card was appropriate for the Stamping Sister's in Christ Challenge, to show nature praising God. I can't think of another creature that is as magnificent as the peacock.
Hope you enjoy!
