Well hello again, it is time for another colour challenge at The Play Date Cafe! This week Sarah Anderson has brought us some homely warmth in our inspiration picture....
We are sponsored this week by Hero Arts who are offering a $25 shopping spree for the winner, and I have been fortunate to work with the fabulously frivolous "Birds & Branches" set.
I have created this dimensional sideways opening card, with paper piecing and glue dots. The papers are a mixture from Scribble Scrabble 'bric-a-brac' and 'nanas trunk', Making Memories 'mistletoe', Kaiser 'After 5 collection', and Bazzill cream cardstock. The were layered and distressed, the edges lightly inked in pumice stone.
The seam binding was coloured with shabby shutters distress ink to match the green, and a few ribbon scraps to tie the other colours in. The centre picture panel was raised on 3D tape for extra dimension. All stamping was done with black archival ink, and the stems of the flowers were dotted with a green Zebra Sarasa pen. You can see in the shadows the inside has been decorated to match the front.
Our design team has been hard at work this week with some wonderful projects for you.....
Our guest designer this week is the wonderful Kelly Rasmussen, and I'm sure you will want to check out her blog to see what she has come up with to inspire you.
