I often like to start with a sentiment, when making cards. I started this card with a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.
What lies behind us and lies before us are tiny compared to what lies within us
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
To get the beautiful coloring on the peacock, I inked up her body with Victorian Velvet and then a little tea dye. I hope you love this card, and that it inspires to you to create.
