For today I am playing along with The Paper Players. What a great sketch challenge and I certainly hope I gave it justice.. Here is my card for today, enjoy.
|Didn't want to realistically color the peacock because of the|
whimsical image. I thought purples, teals, and magentas would be a good fit.
|Cut the peacock panel unevenly to match the outline of the stamped image.|
I then added a magenta mat to square it off.
Details showing the watercolored peacock.
It was color by a waterbase markers and then blended out using an aqua pen.
I adore peacocks!! Their gate and manner in which they hold themselves is just beautiful. When they are splayed ready for attention their feathers just pop with color and texture; so majestic and pretty.
This stamp is colored using water based markers and then blending out the color using an aqua pen. It was stamped on regular 110lb card stock. Peacocks always seem so self assured; so that is why I picked this sentiment. I have a tween in the house now and think this card would be perfect in her lunch (I promise I will keep it on the dry side of her lunchbox.).
Well that should do it for me! Thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. We will see you soon for another post at TheGrandStampede.
All the best,
