Dream big

The theme over at LIM this week is to use the colors of a peacock feather. So that inspired my color choices for this card.
I used a Spellbinders die to cut my dreamcatcher. I used Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers distress inks to color the feathers and Queen's Gold EP to emboss. I spritzed the background with a dark blue mist and some water and added purple brusho.
The sentiment is made up of two different stamps, I masked the " Dream "from a quote sentiment from Prima and the "big" is one from a Technique Tuesday set, they're also embossed with Queen's Gold EP.
I attached the dreamcatcher on foam and added a gold string.

This card is for these challenges:
Less Is More - #292 Peacock feather colors
Addicted to Stamps and More - #209 CAS
Happy Little Stampers - Watercolor Spritz
Glitter n Sparkle - #204 CAS

It's a great idea using purple brushos on the spritzed dark blue, wow!! And the powder has made a fab design! LOVE the dreamcatcher stamped in with gold and Peacock Feathers DI inside, great combo!!! I must remember this !! It's also a clever idea matching two stamps for the sentiment. This CAS is a winners, surely!!! Fab work of art, my friend!!

Your peacock colours are striking against the purple brushos and the combination of words is perfect with the dreamcatcher

Fantastic Card Pia, the gold of the dream catcher itself. At first I thought this was a real one made from metal then realised it is a die cut. Perfect as are the feathers and the use of brusho.
