Rainbow Lady's Challenge 154 - Some Enchanted Evening

This week over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge we are being sponsored by Crafty Ann's Digi Stamps, and I have to say making a choice was not an easy one! Child in a candy shop springs to mind...... Decided (eventually) and chose the Peacock, which I coloured in using Inktense pencils, as their vibrant colours are great for the feathers. I created an inky background with a mix of tumbled glass, stormy sky and black soot distress inks, after having masked off a moon. I stamped out some of the Clarity tree's around the edge, then matted on to a dark blue piece of card. The words form the song have been going around my head all week, so they had to be on there, LOL So they were typed out, and printed off on to a paler blue piece of card, then everything else was added along side. Hope you enjoy the challenge and join in with us this week. Just click on Rainbow lady's Challenge logo on my sidebar for a direct link. Elizabeth xxx

Wow! I agree with Janet, Elizabeth - the first thing that sprang to my mind was how romantic this is. It's stunning and I agree that the inktense pencils are a perfect colouring medium for the peacock.
