Play Date Cafe Challenge & Sunday Stamper Challenge

Over on the Play Date Cafe Julie has chosen the colour challenge this week.  Beautiful colour inspiration, however, I did find it difficult to find papers in my stash for all these colours so I had to improvise.  I am also adding this artwork for the Sunday Stamper Challenge over on Hels blog.
I have used the Tim Holts Alterations die Fanciful Flight.  The background of the wings is glossy card that I have coloured with alcohol inks, Wild Plum, Raisin and Citrus.  I have then cut the outer wings from Bazzill card and then spritzed the body with Crafty Notions spray Aubergine.
I have placed the Fanciful Flight onto an easel card which is made from Bazzill card and again I have spritzed with the aubergine colour spray.  On the back sheet I attached some string and then sprayed and removed the string to leave a shadow.
Considering I did not have much to play with in these colours I am quite pleased with the finished product.  Have a great Thursday, Tracy x x
