How exciting was the first week of the new design team over at the Play Date Cafe last week? We had so many wonderful entries - and we hope you will all play again this week :)
Sarah Anderson is hosting the colour challenge this week with this fun image from artist Quentin Blake....
And this week I thought I'd step out and make a LO - my first one for this year, and something I haven't done for a while :)
The background paper has been stamped in Peeled Paint DI using Tim Holtz Love Struck and Odds & Ends stamps. The edges of all my papers were distressed either with a distressing tool, DI or a combination of both. Both machine and hand stitching feature on this LO.
I made the flowers using some gorgeous jute I bought while on holidays at Christmas, and I'm really happy with how they turned out :)
For the trims, I used some fabric which I gathered VERY roughly, wet and scrunched up some grey paper, and added a little green trim underneath.
Thanks so much for calling by my blog - why not pop over to the Play Date Cafe for more inspiration or information on how to join the challenge, or pop on over to one of the other design team members blogs....
And up for grabs is this fantastic Mini Deck of 6 x 6 papers from the Joy Ride collection :) So what are you waiting for? Go craft up a storm!!
