Birds & Trees

I sure like these Peacocks- coloring them with Copics was so much fun, and really easy.  Adding the sentiment "I'm Proud of You" makes a great card to send for so many occasions.  I sponged the edges with Distress Ink and popped  the image onto a beautiful turquoise CS, after I cut it into an oval with a Spellbinder's die.  I lined the inside with white CS, which was stamped with a peacock feather image.

What a lovely Peacock! I like how you placed the oval more to the side instead of in the middle. Very cool!
