Peacock Digital - A Card for Sis

Introducing a brand new digital Peacock (available soon in store). I created this easel and very colourful card for my sisters birthday using the peacock digi and all the flowers are from Petaloo. Petaloo are our major sponsors this month at CDAC as our 1st birthday celebrations continue. There is also a great competition at the Petaloo site running for projects using the 'Color Me Crazy' range.
The Petaloo flowers are a dream to work with as they are made out of recycled t-shirt material. They hold their shape well and can be dyed or inked with any medium so that you can coordinate your favourite colour combinations to match your project. The big blue flower is from the Tc Collection and all the little daisy style flowers from the Florettes, both are 'Color Me Crazy'. They are a clean bright white cotton when you get them. The little daisy ones have the diamontie already in the center and the large blue one has the silver charm in place.
The image above shows the original stetch at the back that I designed especially with the intention of turning the tail into a beautiful flow of tiny daisies. I coloured all the flowers using Perfect Pearls and found that I had to repeat the process as I wanted the flowers to be bright. The first coat soaked into the material and gave a soft tinted finish and the second coat was much more the look I was hoping to achieve. I did colour the digital with copics, even thou I knew that I was going to be covering the tail with flowers. I needed a complete colour copy of the peacock for advertising the digital in my store and besides I wanted to see what it would look like coloured.

I hope that you like your card sis and I'll post it away tomorrow for you. Wishing you a great day on your birthday and I'll be thinking of you.
