Ostentatious Thanks

Hello! Here is a card I made using one of my new Flourishes sets, Strut Your Stuff. Sorry for the erratic posting the past several days. I've got a cold and am a bit off my game. I seem to be on the mend now, so hopefully I'll be back to normal posting soon.

I only snapped a couple detail photos with this card, but here are the few I have...

To color the peacock, I used Copic markers B00, B02, B04, B26 and Y15.

Then I went over the entire image with my Versa Mark pen and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I sponged the background with So Saffron, Gable Green, Green Galore and Tempting Turquoise. Then I used the feather stamp, inked with Tempting Turquoise, stamped off once, and stamped around the edges. I layered with Temping Turquoise and Basic Black. The card base is Green Galore.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fantastic day!
