Scrap Friends November Sketch Challege

Peacock Green

I've had some Peacock feathers laying around for a while now and not really been sure what to use them for then this challenge came along.

The November Scrap Friends Sketch Challenge.

I especially went and bought a feather stamp from Kaszazz just to do this challenge but I'm pretty sure I'll use it in other projects.

This is my take on the sketch.

I used my love of mixed media at the moment to create the background.

 The feather stamp is just perfect. After I stamped them, I coloured them with water colours, cut them out and lightly edged them with black distress ink.

 The number four is from Tim Holtz's Bingo pieces. They are normally red so I used some black gesso to very carefully change it's appearance.

In order, for the background, I used, Water colour paint then Dylusion spray then dictionary pages I crumpled up and glued down with a two part glue one part water solution and then texture paste on a circle stencil. I've also applied some black Ink stamping and lastly I sprinkled some Perfect Pearls.

Green is my favourite colour, so even if this was a disaster I'd still love it! My fingers are all green and shimmery. So cool :)
