Strut Your Sparkly Stuff!
I made this for this Flourishes' challenge...it's so hard to photo Pearl Ex's shimmer! More later because we're off to man the Pumpkin Patch!
edited to add: I stamped the peacock from Strut Your Stuff with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Prismas and Gamsol to lay in some base colors, then added some shimmer with Pearl Ex (blue, turqoise, green and gold) using a Versamarker. This Basic Grey Boxer designer paper seemed like a great background when paired with some bright turqoise card stock matted with black to make the colors pop. I kept the embellishments ultra simple so that this fellow could strut his stuff without competition!
I was hoping to get a better photo, but the sun is refusing to shine in Florida this afternoon! There came up an enormous black cloud while we were at the Pumpkin Patch so we packed everything up and went inside. Within five minutes the rain started, and the wind blew the canopy we had been under (a frame that was staked into the ground) into a mass of twisted metal! Needless to say, we didn't sell any pumpkins today!
