A peacock ATC

for a summer PAT (pick a theme) on the Illustrated Artcards site.
I really wish that all the shine and glitter of this one would show up better in the scan...but it really looks great in person. I did all the stylized feathers in pen & ink. Then, for the body, I used beautiful glitter gel pens. They blend so well and really have a nice shimmer that doesn't show all that much in the pic. I then used a variety of gold leaf for the circle in the center as well as the areas outside of the feathers.
I'm pretty pleased with the whole thing overall. It actually looks quite lovely in person!
