Spotlight Peacock

Yaaaay! I've just seen that my House Mouse card was Top 3 at CAS Colours and Sketches #79, so a big 'Thank You' to their DT.

My card today is using my new SU stamp, the beautiful peacock

I stamped the bird twice, and one was divided up into 3 squares. The three squares were then coloured with my AP and markers, and mounted on red card. The whole bird was left uncoloured and laid on red, and then a white card base. The coloured squares were then placed back on top of the base, with the one turned as a diamond and raised on 3D pads. The sentiment banners tuck under the diamond.

I am entering it in these challenges :

the sketch is from
