I so enjoyed making my metal covered box the other day I decided to have a go at using a different colour acrylic paint for the base, choosing 'pink' from this week's play date colours mainly as I could find a green and a yellow stazon ink to colour the metal but the pink is rather bright in stazon, to say the least!
Mona chose this week's beautiful Spring inspired colours and it's amazing how every play date cafe designer's piece is so different this week. The balance of colour in a project really changes the effects. Mine is very definitely PINK!!!
The base metal is gold coloured and I painted it with pink True Colours [Baby Girl] by Stewart Gill before spraying it with pink Sticky Fingers spray [to add texture] then adding extra colour using Sunflower Yellow and Cactus Green Stazon Ink.
I cut the dragonfly from felt and organza using the new die from Paper Artsy. I'm so in love with that die!! Don't forget to visit the cafe for some more inspiration for these colours! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with :)
