Peacock sitting beneath the blossom

Hello. The idea for my card came from the thinking that a peacock would never want to be in a cage.
For the peacock I used white glossy card and coloured it with green, blue and yellow alcohol inks on a dabber. I then stamped the peacock with black stazon and trimmed it out. For more detail I used a white and gold pen on his tail feathers. The branches above him were stamped in brown from the Chinese Lanterns clear stamps then flowers punched out and edged with pink and a pearl centre. I sat the peacock on top of the die cut cage. Thanks for visiting. Debbie

A stunner with your highlighting of the tail to echo the gold of the cage. The branch stamped in brown works beautiful so as not to detract from the focal image & I love the way the branch with the flowers together with the cluster of flowers on the cage actually frame the whole. The clean white background provides a super foil for the whole & I like the way your various elements spill over the bordering edges.
