This week our challenge at Less is More is to make a clean and simple card using the colours of a peacock feather.
I googled a few inspiration photos and found that I needed to incorporate light blue, dark blue, purple, gold and green. Does anyone else immediately think "Christmas!" or is it just me? Tee hee.
Just the one card from me this week, but I do like how it turned out and plan on doing a few others for later in the year.
I used Distress Inks for the tree and then sprayed it lightly with water so the ink "ran" to get a soft, feathered effect. A white pen was used for tiny snowflakes over the area within the aperture, and baubles were added to the tree.
