Tanda Challenge Card for this week.

Had some time today so thought I would have a go at creating something for the Tanda Challenge this week. The theme was Pretty as a Peacock and the challenge was to use the peacock of the colours that are typical of the peacock. Because New Zealand Paua shell is very similar in colour, I chose to use that as the basis for the card.

I found some paper serviettes in a kitchen shop recently that were based on the paua shell image, so I pasted the top layer onto card and used that as the lower part of the card. I stitched the two different pieces of card onto the base card and glued pieces of paua shell onto the card. I love these colours.
