Textured and Purple

It's good to be back crafting after the enforced break. Concerts, school workload, collaborating on a patchwork quilt for a wedding present, and an 18th birthday left me with no time at all. I found getting back to it strangely hard today, but in no time at all was covered in ink! Great to play with my new stamps too!

This is my contribution for TMTA's theme of texture, and Wednesday Stamper's colour purple. The scanner doesn't pick up the texture, but I inked up the background stamps quite heavily with the acrylic paints. This is sprayed over with homemade glimmer mists, and then I sponged through some sequin waste.
