Happy New Year!  I hope that everyone has had a wonderful start to 2016.  Here is a bright, cheery birthday card I created for a friend of mine whose favorite animals are peacocks.

For this card, I started with a base of Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used an ATC sized stamp from Art Neko from this sheet that I got as a birthday gift from my parents.  I love the images on these stamps and the fact that they are deeply etched red rubber.  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the image using the following Spectrum Noir markers: BT1, BT2, CT4, EB6, EB8, GB3, LG1, LG3, and LG5.  I then colored in the background using a Tombow marker (452) and a paintbrush to fill in the background color with water before going over the entire image with clear and black Wink of Stella pens.  The sentiment is from a Sizzix set called Birthday and Frames, and it is stamped using Memento Nautical Blue.  I embossed some beautiful Treasures 80# Pool cardstock with an Anna Griffin embossing folder that I felt set off the feathers.
