Work of Art Peacock

I was looking for a quick way to color the beautiful Perfect Peacock image for my All Occasion Card Class last week. Since we make 3 of each design, taking the time to color each one wouldn't work well for this class, so instead we used the Work of Art set to add color to this detailed image.

After adding swipes of color over the peacock image with the Work of Art set I also added some splotches using the Gorgeous Grunge set. The next step was to spritz the piece of card stock with some water to blend the color a bit. (so make sure you stamp your image using Black Stazon) Once the piece has dried, the color softens quite a bit.You can go back at this time and add more color to the peacock body and flowers using your Aqua Painter, if you wish. On this one, I did add a little more color to the main body and a bit on the leaves, otherwise I liked it so I left it as is. Each and every one you do using this technique will turn out unique. Here's another example...
As you can see, I stepped this card up a bit by adding some embossing at the side and some Basic Rhinestones to some of the flowers. I also spent a bit more time adding more color to the peacock with my Aqua Painter, as the color wasn't quite as bright as my first example.

Thanks for visiting today!
