Everyone


Hey everyone! Thanks for taking the time to comment. Thanks for the support. Thanks for visiting or browsing. Thanks for everything.


Playing along this morning with The Play Date Cafe and their gorgeous color combination. I printed this image from TiffanyDoodles directly onto some rose colored paper, then colored it with pencils and cut and lifted portions off of the card base. I attached a white panel on the inside of the card to create even more dimension and a ribbon tab by the sentiment that was stamped in indigo blue.


Fabulous colors at The Play Date Cafe, and I'm happy that I challenged myself to actually play along with a color combo that had four swatches. Woosh!

Oh, and I also wanted to let you know about this!



Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (Cranberry Crisp) SU

Digital Image: (Lily Stems) TiffanyDoodles
Stamps: (Sentiment from Mehndi Medallions) WPlus9
Ink: (Night of Navy Pigment) SU
Other: (Night of Navy Marker) SU, (Colored Pencils) Prismacolor, (Corner Round Punch) WR Memory Keepers, (White Gel Pen) Signo, (Black Marker) Sharpie
