Take the Leap with Play Date Cafe...
Even though I struggle with purple, I loved this weeks colour inspiration board at The Play Date Cafe and couldn't resist playing along. The pastel colours look so delicate so I thought I'd try a new technique using a feather today. As the purple content of my stash is minimal, I used Tattered Angels Glimmermist in Denim over Candy Pink to create my base then dragged the tip of the feather through the wet inks to combine and define the ink pattern (inspired by the gorgeous work of Louise Nelson). The feather theme perfectly suited this sentiment stamp from My Favourite Things Clearly Sentimental About Success watermark inked then heat embossed with Ranger Ink Sea Foam embossing powder. Background paper is by Fancy Pants.
Really difficult to get a good photo of the amazing colours and shades that glimmermist produces - especially on a not-so-sunny day!
Hope you have the confidence to build your wings today :)
