Embroidery Pattern Peacock Card

Peacock Embroidery Card

Yes indeed!  I used an embroidery pattern as the main image for this card.  The image was too inspiring to resist not turning it into a card.  I feel so peaceful when I'm in the "coloring zone".  It was a tad of a challenge to get started with so many colors to choose from.  Once I got started each layer of ink blended so well.  I had to stop myself from adding too much.  For dimension and bling I added Stickles and Glossy Accents.  It really helped to pop out the peacock's flowing tail. 


To balance the bright image I also used lots of dimensional embellishments.  Here I layerd fluffy flowers with ribbon swirls and pearl sprays.  The ribbon boarder was also layered with three types of ribbon.  Puffy paint was applied along the image boarder whereas I inked in the card boarder.   I loved putting this creation together.  It challenged me from the get go and now that I am done I can't wait to color up another one. 

Tail Details: Copic Markers, Stickles & Glossy Accents  

That's it for today!  Thank you for clicking in!
