For this month we had to create a heart using cotton wool balls sandwiched between two heart shapes, with a border of material. A while ago I bought a wonderful peacock stamp that I wanted to use, this of course decided on my choice of colours. For the front heart shape I sprayed some sheet music with Glimmer Mists in blue and olive green and for my border I added some loosely woven ribbon that I sprayed with the same blue.
The cardstock base was coated with gesso and the ribbon and cotton wool was added while still wet. This was left to dry completely overnight. I stamped the peacock with blue Versamark and heat embossed it with clear holographic powder that shimmers and picks up all the blues and greens surrounding it. I cut some heart shapes out of the same sprayed paper, fanned them out into a representation of a peacock's tail and added them with a blue brad. I stitched the top layer onto the bottom with blue and green thread. "Peacock Tail" is written in blue felt pen. This heart has a shimmer that cannot unfortunately be seen in this photo.
Off to look at the wonderful contributions by the other ladies in this challenge. Thank you for looking at my blog and for your wonderful comments last month.
