Honestly, where does the time go?! At Less is More we've whooshed around to the beginning of another month which means today marks the start of another Colour challenge. And this week we want to see colours of...
When I think of peacock feathers I think of greens and aquas, and also deep indigo/purple shades, as well as what seems to be a shade of gold.
I've made two cards this week, here's the first...
On a panel of white cardstock I stamped the flower and leaves image in waterproof black ink. I then watercoloured using my Zig markers. I used Strathmore Bristol cardstock as this works brilliantly when blending with these markers (thanks to my LIM buddy, Sarah, for the samples!) so the panel was adhered directly onto the card base. The die cut Thanks was then adhered, this cut from some pearlescent gold cardstock.

And as this thanks die is a shiny new addition to my craft stash I just have to link up at the lovely Darnell's NBUS challenge.
And for my second card I made a shaker, and decided to leave it sentiment free...
I started by die cutting the smaller stitched rectangle from some white cardstock. I then die cut the butterfly from it and adhered some acetate to the back. The same butterfly was cut from some pearlescent gold cardstock and inlaid into the aperture. I then filled with sequins to create the shaker. I was going to adhere the small rectangle to the card base but it looked a little incomplete so I inlaid it into a larger stitched rectangle and then adhered this to the card base on 3D foam.
