PDCC #51

Friday, October 15, 2010

I couldn't resist the gorgeous color challenge over at the Play Date Cafe this week, such a beautiful, soft palette. Here's what I came up with.

I love the new Text It Stamp set by Waltzingmouse Stamps, it's great for backgrounds. I stamped it here using Brilliance Moonlight White. I stamped some pretty little butterflies from Laura Ashley over that.

The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse Stamps, stamped using VersaMagic Magnolia Bud. I made the little rolled flower from gauze bandage that I dyed with coffee! I love these flowers, so quick to make! Here's the link to the tutorial. The piece behind it is a gathered piece of dress fabric lining also dyed with coffee.

I prettied it up a little with some Zva Creative self adhesive crystals, love these! I distressed the edges of the card a little with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen. I'll definitely use this color combo again, I think it had a relaxing effect on me!! : )

I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the new sketch over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. You won't want to miss it, it's a super sketch!
