Play Date Cafe Challenge 32


The challenge at Play Date Cafe this week was to use the colors lemon, pale peach, and peach. I must say that these colors presented a real challenge for me. I like the colors, but using them combined in one art piece is definitely outside my comfort zone. I was saved somewhat when I realized that this stamp from Paper Jewels would work nicely with the colors. To color the image I used both Copic markers and my peach Creative Inspirations paint. The background was done using a peach Core'dinations paper embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder and then sanding the raised areas.

The image looks wonderful in the die, the Sanded Core-dinations technique really adds dimension to your card, very pretty! Thanks for playing at the PDCC.
