Purple Perfect Peacock

Purple Perfect Peacock... that is a bit of a tongue twister!   Now I know that peacocks are not really this color but it is fun to come up with different color combos using the Blendabilities markers.
I love the combo of Rich Razzleberry marker with the Blackberry Bliss paper from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper.  When looking through papers in the new catalog the one that really attracted my attention was this dark purple floral design.  So it was a natural choice that my first card would include it.

The detail in the Perfect Peacock stamp is incredible!  So fun to add layers and layers of color. If you click on the photo it will enlarge to see the color gradient and variation a bit better.
I used the Blendabilities markers for several other things on this card as well.  The "bow" is white ribbon that I colored with the darkest Coastal Cabana marker and then pulled apart the strands.
And the rhinestones are colored with the darkest Rich Razzleberry marker.
I thought the sentiment from the Flower Patch photopolymer stamp set fit this card BE YOU TIFULLY!

  1. Stunning!! I love Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss together…very nice…and your colouring is gorgeous. Love the "ribbon" treatment, too. Trying to figure out which white ribbon you used. :-)
