Peacock Fan

I always like when playing along with a challenge takes me to a card I would have never made on my own. Today my daughter got her Noah's Ark toy in the mail, her first ebay bid and win at the age of 3! Well, long story short, it started with a quest for a peacock toy and ended with Noah's Ark. So I was particularly drawn to the ColorQ challenge inspiration photo for this week. No peacock stamp? Just punt!

I also followed the Mojo Monday sketch for this week.

My layout doesn't have tons of layers, but I think it does have interest.

I rock-and-rolled the stamp image. To create the fan, I cut a half scallop circle from the Scallop Circle #2 die with Wild Wasabi DSP and scored and folded the fan. I colored the fan with Soft Suede by sponging and inking direct-to-paper. I finally decorated the fan with punched circles.

Stamps: Dream Gardens; Paper: Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White; Ink: Pacific Point, Soft Suede, Tempting Turquoise; Accessories: Sponge, Circle punches, Turquoise ribbon, Perfect Details Texturz Plate, Scallop Circle #2 die, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!
