It has been a few weeks since I have made a card, so it was a little hard to coax my mojo out from under the rock where it has been hiding. I colored the peacock with both sharpies and copics. It needed something, so i stenciled in the clouds. It still looked like the peacock was floating in air, so I added some extra branches and flowers.i added some liquid pearls and stickles, and it was done. I hope you play along in this week's F4A challenge. TFL, Francie

I'm glad that Robin's challenge brought you into the gallery today, Francie. It's lovely to see your peacock, and the stencilled clouds are totally fabulous! I love those blues. I always struggle with the background for peacocks and having them look floating - relieved to know I am not alone.

Really a MAGNIFICENT card, Francie. A male peacock is a showy bird to begin with, but with your coloring he even looks all the more elegant and beautiful. It is obvious you put a lot of time and of yourself into each card that you make.
