Perfect Peacock

This is one of my favorite Stampin' Up! stamps from their new 2014-2015 catalog.  I love peacock stamps and this one is especially beautiful.  It was particularly fun to color and work with. 

 
 

Mr. Peacock is colored with Copic markers after stamping with Momento Tuxedo Black ink on GP110 cardstock. 

The foliage dies added are Penny Black Inc.'s Fresh Breeze (fern) and Memory Box's Fresh Foliage, both of which are colored with Copics and cut apart before gluing down.

The feather is from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities set Peacock Feather, which was also colored with Copics.

Bits of gold were added here and there with a Sharpie Fine Point Metallic Gold Pen for a finishing touch before matting on Island Indigo and Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  This was then offset and matted in the top left corner of a white card base.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a fab rest of the weekend.

Perfect colouring once again. You did the PERFECT combination between stamps, die cuts, white background and bright colours. It is beautiful :)
