Colour Me...! CMCC #8 - Let your dreams take flight

This is my third post, Guest Designing at Colour Me...!  I'm still so excited that Tara and Hayley invited me!  You know...these color combos just get better and more fun each week.  I love this week's trio of colors.
Take a look at the CMCC #8 inspiration.

I adore these soft, subtle colors.  Don't you?

Yes.  You're seeing the same feather stamp set that I used last week. was still on my craft table and I just love these images.  AND this week's colors were just perfect for feathers.
That's my excuse. Lol!

I inked my feathers with all 3 challenge colors.  After stamping them onto watercolor paper, I misted them with water to blur the images a bit.  Once that had dried, I misted with Mister Huey's Shine color mist.  If you look closely at the first photo (click on it for a larger photo) I think you can see a bit of the droplets of shine.

This technique is so easy and so much fun.  Have you tried it?  Well, you'll want to see what the Design Team at CMCC has created...they're so talented.  Just click HERE!
