I don't know what my muse got up to whilst on her extended vacation, but she has been whispering strange things to me ever since her return. Use colour, she says, unusual objects, don't think pretty, think dark. So it was no wonder that my tag for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge turned out the way it did.
The theme was FEATHERS, and after rummaging through my boxes I found that the only feathers I had were shiny black ones from a feather boa. Having shown them to my muse, she immediately whispered " Dark Angel " to me. I had to obey, of course.
I used a tag I had previously covered in various Treasure Gold colours. It seemed to be a fitting background for those wonderfully shiny feathers. They became the wings of the Dark Angel, who was bound in chains of copper wire. I stamped the background in just a few places, added some texture paste dots which I glammed up with Treasure Gold and added a fragment of black millinery netting -
I hope you can see at least a little of the shiny background and the gorgeous shimmer of the feathers, it was so difficult to photograph.
Because of all the shimmery shiny goodness, I am also entering the tag in the Paper Artsy 'SHINY STUFF' challenge. That Treasure Gold stuff inspires so many ideas. I love it. Next on the TG to do list is beads......
