Peacock Proud

Turquoise is such a rich color! I especially love turquoise jewelry. And, how cool to be a peacock and get to be "dressed" in turquoise all the time. One of the Verve release week challenges was a color challenge: turquoise, grey and black. So I grabbed this gorgeous image from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff called Flourished Peacock. I used some blue green copics and Aqua Stickles to give the peacock hints of color and loads of shimmer. I didn't have a black flower so I created one with a copic marker and an airbrush kit. Then, I spritzed some glimmer mist on it to give it a slight sparkle, too.
Lindsay's got a couple of new sets in the shop. Be sure to pop in and check these out. If you're looking for a good sale, head over to My Grafico where everything, including Lindsay's great designs, are 25% off today and tomorrow.
Need more inspiration? Be sure to check Lindsay's blog and all the ladies of the fabulous design team! The cold weather is keeping us all indoors heating up the craft rooms with creative energy!
Have a zippy kind of day!
