Purple Crumpet Fairy Spring Challenge Day 16 - Spring Gradient

Okay first an apology. My cuticles are revolting! I have been working so hard on my studies that I've been neglecting them a bit and it shows. Secondly, My clean up is AWFUL. My clean up brush died and I haven't yet got a new one. So I'm really sorry.

Today's challenge is spring gradient. I didn't want to do a sponged gradient, so I decided to do a stamping gradient instead. This is the first time I've tried it and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!

I also added some tiny blue bullion to the little flowers which I really like.

The purple is A-england - Guinevere over which I've stamped with A-england - Princess Tears (I initially wrote princess teats and giggled about it for a good ten minutes!). I LOVE the effect! It's so subtle. The light is rubbish here at the moment so I couldn't capture it well enough but I definitely suggest you give it a go because the effect is awesome! The image is from my beloved Dashica SDP A plate which I cannot stop using! I LOVE IT SO! Okay enough waffle... PICTURES!

That last picture is horrible. I'm sorry.

I used:

A-england - Guinevere
A-england - Princess Tears
Nubar - Baby Sprout

for the stamping:
Orly - Purple Pleather
Konad Special Stamping Polish - Light Blue
Konad Special Stamping Polish - Light Pink

and the obligatory coat of Seche :) 
Please check out these other lovely ladies participating in the challenge!

Thanks so much for looking!
