FOSTV is challenging you

to make a Easel Card. You can choose to do any type of easel you like. I chose to do
 a traditional square. I used the beautiful peacock image from the Be A 
Showoff Set. The male is such a majestic bird with 
such amazing color and a voice that carries for miles!
.I have colored my image with water pencil and then added
highlights with Luminese water colors.In person it has a
beautiful shimmer.  Then matted it, leaving it plain to show
off the image. The dp has glittery dots and add some fun
shimmer to go with my image. The mat was cut with a 
Spellbinder die.The bg was embossed and added to the 
holder. Using a SU scalloped border die I added a couple 
of layers to the top and then used the Spellbinder fleur
de lis boder for the top. The HB Sentiment was also cut
with a Spellbinder die. A few jewels and raised dots finished
the top. The bottom was stamped with a feather from the
same Showoff Set, a few more layers of scalloped
and dots to finish off the bottom. The buttons stitched
on to make the stop for the top.

Sorry havent been around much ladies my computer has
been on the fritz but fixed last night so will be making the
rounds tonight after work.

That peacock is beautiful and I like your row of buttons for your stop. The feather is just perfect and the top is gorgeous.
