Proud as a Peacock

This is one of my favorite images from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, I have wanted to attempt it forever!  I am really happy with how it came out too.  I printed it twice once on the new Mod Summer Papers, which I changed to the color blue and again on white card stock.  I colored the big centers on the white cs in with my 3 different colors of Letraset Pro Markers, then cut them out and pasted them onto the blue print.  I did some shading on the blue print along with a ton of Stickles, I outlined just about everything with Stickles.  The picture truly does not show the sparkle I have going on here.   The gorgeous jewels are from Pizzazz APlenty the StampinUp background paper matched the embossing plate and that lace reminded me of the peacocks fan. Both of these sets are on sale today,  Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and MyGraphico are having a  1 day 40% off sale.  Please check out the bargains, you will kick yourself if you don't!  Thanks for looking, I really appreciate all of your sweet comments, ~Diane.
I am entering these challenges.
