Peacock time again

I had to laugh when I saw the new challenge at Less is More, use the colours in a peacock's tail, because only the day before I'd posted this card which would have been perfect for the challenge.

While I could still remember which of the inks from my Kaleidacolour pads I had used to make the die cut peacock, I dug them out again and this time blobbed them randomly all over a piece of semi-matte photo paper to give a much more intense colour. Than I stamped the art nouveau style peacock's tail feather stamp from a very old Tandastamps set over the background using black Stazon ink and cut out the images.

I had just bought this gorgeous ribbon from a Facebook page called Its sew Gorgeous and was waiting for a chance to use it - and it is perfect for this challenge! I added a stamped sentiment using a stamp from a set that came with a recent issue of Creative Stamping.

  2. Absolutely stunning! The elements are so stylish and beautifully coloured, and that ribbon is perfect. I did think when I saw your other card that it would have been perfect for this week, but then we wouldn't have had a chance to see this gorgeous creation so it's worked out well :) Thanks for playing!

  3. Wow...cool design. Really eye catching. Love those modern peacock feathers! Thanks for playing along!

  4. Gorgeous ribbon Jane, love the colours.

  7. Stunning card Jane. The ribbon is fabulous, just off to check out the FB page!

  8. I also said 'Oh Damn!' or something on that line when I saw your peacock on a card last week!!!
    BUT alas you've rocked it again with more fabulous stash to showcase for our colour challenge.
    Superb work Jane! Thanks for sharing and playing along with us at Less is More this week.

  9. Isn't it funny how we often make cards too early that would be perfect for a challenge that we never knew about! I'm loving that ribbon, so pretty and the feather stamp is really unusual. You've conveyed the peacock colours wonderfully.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
