The colour challenge at "Less is More" this week is to use the colours of peacock's feathers... I decided to use an image of a peacock's feather too as had I picked one up in a Grab Bag from Rubber Necker stamps at Ally Pally some time ago.
Essentially the colours are blue and green, but there is also quite a bit iridescence in these glorious shades.
To achieve this I used a variety of glittery powders from WOW; St Lucia Surf, Antigua Breeze and Jamaica Green.
The sentiment is from a die cut from Hero Arts, also inked with Versamark and embossed.
Here's the same stamp, this time stamped on white card, embossed in silver and then painted with a water brush. Various shades of blue and green Brushos were then sprinkled over and allowed to react with the water.
When dry, the feather was cut out and a twinkling of Glamour Dust was added for good measure!
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted and embossed in silver.
