Aurora Challenge #66- Black & White with or without a splash of color using Peacock Queen 2

Hey you guys!! I am so excited to show you what I made this month!! Please forgive me if you find a thousand spelling and grammatical errors this post though!! My laptop died the other night. Out of no where shut itself off and called it a day. Luckily my brother was able to retrieve all my files off of it and transfer them onto my new desktop!!! But this new keyboard is TINY and finicky soooo that's gonna take some getting used to and I feel like the buttons are in different places!?! Did that change in the last 9 years I have had the same laptop?
Anywhooooo... I got to work with the stunning Peacock Queen 2 digi that was just released last month. And its amazing!!!! I am so in love!! Check it out!!!
Isn't it stunning?!?!?! I really wanted to highlight the peacock parts when I colored it so I decided to do those as my pop of color!! I am so thrilled with how this turned out!! want to see the rest of the project? Cuz I swear it is more than just a pretty coloring this time!! I promised you guys a wicked 3D project this month and I think I came through!!!
This my friends is a clock!! I took this stunning Peacock Queen 2 and turned her into a clock face. Dreaming Tree released these clock svg's a few months ago and I knew I wanted to make one but I wasn't into all the gears this one is designed with in their files, so I modified it! That is what I am so loving about crafting with digital products!!! I can mix projects and mediums together to create something totally unique!!
I looked very hard for silver clock hands but without ordering online it wasn't going to happen so gold it is!! I think they help to pop out the gold in the peacock feathers?
I love how this turned out from every angle!
This was such a fun challenge to be a part of!! Black and White is always a bit of a challenge for any crafter/ colorist as it pushes us to work hard and creating all those different levels within our projects. Thank you Mitzi for pushing us once again!!

If you would like to have this stunning image in your collection you can grab it on Etsy HERE or HERE.

Thanks for popping by again this month!! Its always so nice to have you all around!!


  1. OMG!!!!!! This is SOOOO AMAZING, Sara! I'll say it's stunning from every angle. WOW! And what gorgeous coloring of Peacock Queen 2. Amazing pops of color on the delicate feathers and I agree that the gold clock hands highlight your colors perfectly. Love how your black and white flowers soften the bold architectural lines of the clock, too. Such fabulous and creative work! xxD

  2. Ooooh I didn't realize it was a clock.... FANTASTIC.... I just love it and your coloring is just amazing. I'm in love.... Hugz

  3. This is mind boggling, Sara! What an awesome project!! I love seeing designers tackling this rather intimidating challenge theme and having fun and coming through with a stunning work. You blew me away with this clock! I love the choice of image and how you colored her. The golden clock hands do pick up the gold in the colored image beautifully, and I also think that they make it easier to read the time, too, by not blending in with the black and white too much. Thank you so much for the fabulous inspiration for out mid-challenge post today at AWCB! Mitzi xxx
