Inspired by a Peacock…and a Vamp!

Can you be inspired by both and make one project? I say “hell yeah!” First, I was working with Lily (Bitten) one of the brand spankin’ new digis from my wonderful friend Tonya. Click HERE to see the others and buy the set for yourself! Then, Kim, one of my fellow DT members over at Smeared and Smudged has her latest challenge up… be inspired by a peacock! Well, let’s get on with it right???


I made a 6x6 card and used a whole bunch of papers and stamps to create the card. Please click on any of my pics to see them bigger.


Isn’t she beautiful? I love the sexual energy she’s giving off. She reminds me of Bella from the black Dagger Brotherhood. She is colored with my Spectracolor pencils.


And here are some peacock feathers! I used colors inspired by a peacock too. Not so vibrant… I muted it down a bit.


Don’t all of these papers and stamps give you the idea of feathers? Oh! And my lovely sentiment is from some Blog Candy I won from Alex. The stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps.

I think the card came out really pretty considering all the different patterns I chose to use. And the colors are really chill… Which is just what I’m about to do! Go and chill…! Have a Happy Mother’s Day to all my Mommy friends!

Oooooh, pretttty!!! You did such a beautiful job with this gorgeous image. She is definitely BDB-Bella-like. I just finished the newest BDB today (sniff, sad that it's over) and those characters are on my mind today. :)
