Elegant Peacock.

Have you ever made a card and thought "Wow, I love this card!". Well, I haven't thought that a lot about my own work...........and I don't want to blow my own trumpet, but I do think this one turned out great.

I'd like to say it was all my own design, but I did see a card posted recently that featured a peacock with the same Cuttlebug textile embossing folder background. I think the card was on the TJ artwork group, so if anyone knows whose card it was please let me know so I can give them credit.

I've used a TJ technique from the Feb newsletter called Pencilled Twinks, and I do like this technique very much. The background is my take on the TJ Aged Metallic technique. You probably cant see the shimmer too much from the photo, but IRL it just sparkles!

Hope you like this card as much as I do.
