Pretty Peacock




Good Morning everyone!  I am so happy February is here... Not only are we another month closer to Spring, but Doodle Pantry has posted a fabulous new release!  

Today I am sharing a beautiful new set called Pretty Peacock. For my card, I used one of the outline images and colored the image with Irojiten colored pencils.  Colors were blended with a Prismacolor blender pencil.  Although the pattern is not visible in the photo, the yellow part of the feathers is actually patterned digi paper.  To add a vintage feel, I used distress ink to sponge the background; added some beautiful gold embroidered paper; and a gold bow with bling.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks 4CCC #179 -- Anything Goes
Creative Moments Challenge 35 -- Anything Goes/Add Some Sparkle

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.
