Sarita, one of the most talented crafters around, came up with this weeks challenge for Colour Create using Navy, Lime and Turquoise, with the little extra being that you do not use any designed background, rather make your own - something she is superb at (check out her blog here)
These colours cried out peacock for me so I set about making a background card using my favourite technique, stamping with versamark the brushing over with cosmic shimmer pigment powder.
The peacock feather stamp is a dimension fourth stamp. The large circle pattern, an
inkadinkadoo noteworthy stamp, was stamped onto lime card and embossed with moonglow midnight violet obsidian.
The smaller circle, a papermania stamp was stamped onto paper I made using silk painting dye and cosmic shimmer sprayed
and dried. All finished off with turquoise mirror card a few gems and a dangly hanging in the middle. Unfortunately, as the card has a very deep shine, the photo doesn't do it justice but you could try this for yourself, even if you don't have any pigment powders. I've used very shiny eyeshadow powder before now and been really pleased with the results.
Must go to bed now, going to papercraft extravaganza at Harrogate tomorrow and won't get up if I stay awake much longer.
Have a good weekend
