My adorable baby peacock! :)

Good morning everyone!

I made a card with an adorable image yesterday.. See it for yourself, it's really cute... After I fussy cut the image, I remembered the brilliant sketch at 'CAS(E) this sketch' challenge and this is my third entry for the challenge!! I really LOVED the sketch!

Last week at Sentimental Sunday's challenge, the sponsor was Doodle Pantry. Though I'm not a big fan of digital images, I just couldn't resist buying few images as they were soooo adorable. The image which I used on my card is from THIS set...called Peacock birdie...

OK...Here is my card..



Now...don't you agree this is one of the most adorable images ever? My printer's cartridge was almost out of ink and the outline of the image was dark gray rather than black. It took away all the beauty of the image. So I took my black marker, outlined the image as it was...

I then coloured the image with my Faber castell bi colour pencils..I tried my best to do justice to the image. I guess I should have added some more green...what do you think?



The branch with leaves and a flower on the top left corner of my card is hand-drawn and coloured! I'm not good at drawing but I wanted something to coordinate with the image and I had to try! :) Some of my loved ones thought it was a stamp! :p

Here's another close up of the birdie...
Sorry for the large file size of the pictures. I intentionally didn't resize them as I felt they had lost clarity when I did. It took me more than an hour to colour and fussy cut this beauty...

Let me know whether you like it...

Linking this to 'CAS(E) this sketch!' challenge...


I'd like to enter IBS customer gallery contest (http://joannamunster.com/customer-gallery/) with this. The sentiment is from IBS 'Sky's the limit' stamp set.

I use my black marker a lot, too, to fill in stuff that didn't get printed or stamped right. Thank goodness for that little tool!

The baby peacock is SO sweet, and the IBS sentiment is just perfect for it!

You are having such fun entering at IBS this month, aren't you, crafty girl? ;)
