Living In Color - Sneak Peek!!

Hi all! I know I must sound like a broken record but when Flourishes comes out with new stamps - that release is ALWAYS my favorite! And this one -- is my favorite! ;-) I see a trend here.....

The release is called Living In Color for a reason -- every stamp set that you'll see these next few days is full of colorful potential. So, without further ado-- we kick off today's peek with... Strut Your Stuff!
What's more colorful than a peacock? I love the bright and bold colors you can add and the sentiments in this set are so fun! I didn't use one for my card but -- click around on the link list below and you're sure to see a few! They would create fun, all occassion cards perfect for a little pick me up for a friend or even an "atta boy" card!

I stamped my peacock in Versamark and then embossed with a detail powder I've had forever (the label is long gone) but it was a Verdigris mix of turquoise and copper. I then colored the image with watercolor pencils and blended with a blender pen. The outline on the right hand side of the image was done with a light grey marker. See that filligree done in copper embossing powder along the right side of my image? Well, that my friends is also a part of this set! Too cool! I added some bling just for kicks! The paper, I thought was perfect for this creation - it's called Hamby Screen Prints and I picked it up at my LSS. It was literally calling my name!

Want to see a close up of the feathers and how they were colored? Here you go!
