CR84FN20 - Happy Birthday!

Such beautiful spring colors for  CR84FN20 challenge this week. 

Here is what they inspired:

Stamp Hero Arts Peacock in Ranger Archival black ink. Color with water color pencils and aqua brush. Accent peacock and flowers with glue and glitter. The background was stamped using the Memento Plum dye ink and spritzed on the stamp with pearl misters. The background (Hero Arts) was inked up with Memento Soft Plum and spritzed with pearl mister (Pearl) before stamping on the cardstock.

Here are the gorgeous inspiration photos for this week:  The pictures are courtesy of Adam at Embrace Life Photo
