Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology line

It's taken me a while to use this Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology line ,
just waiting for inspiration to strike . 
But when in doubt , just do it i say ! 

The problem with a "blank canvas" so to speak with these House of 3 designed papers 
is what mediums, colors etc to use on them - or to even use them as is . 
I used my photo here as my guide 
and decided to take the plunge 
with my newfound Luminarte radiant rain shimmering mists - 
since I only have 3 of them . 
For the background pp - Fancy Filigree , I used Teal Zircon as the main color 
with some Butternut around the sides.
The smaller pp ( Divine Damask ) a top that background paper was misted with Ginger Peach .

The colors are simply vivid & truly shimmery , if I can convince you with this pic ! lol . 

Some fun new techniques I tried out here - stamping along the border of my pp  with the Parisian Anthology clear stamp set. Can I just say this is such an affordable stamp set - you can combine images in unlimited ways & probably not tire of it - & I thought it was such a small set at first ! 

I also combined misting with inking with distress inks on the Divine Damask paper here -
 using Walnut Stain around the edges
 and Broken China ( misted with water after inking )  in the title area .

I didn't know how my "blank canvas" would turn out at the start
 & that's certainly a great part of the fun of using this line for me . 

My Pink Paislee Sweetness collection pack,
(thanks to Scrapoholics - I didn't think I would get any bit of this line readily in tiny Singapore .;) 
 was dropped at my doorstep 
while I was out at the LSS this morn - 
no new papers that I wanted to get today - so I just might cut into that next ! ;)
