Play Date Cafe Challenge 52
Play Date Cafe is celebrating its one year anniversary. Congratulations for a year of fun challenges! The challenge this week is to use colors influenced by the image on the left...orange? yellow? pink? our choice. I had a few thoughts which influenced my card. First, it's near the end of October and I wanted to do at least one card for "Breast Cancer Awareness Month", and I had the ribbon stamp from Kitchen Sink Stamps, as well as the sentment stamps. I wanted to use my rosette die from the Tim Holtz collection. I had crepe paper ribbon which I thought would look good with the rosette. I sprayed it pink using glimmer mist and then I died the other ribber with distress ink. When I saw the image and the color choices, I immediately thought of the antique wallpaper technique from the June/July Technique Junkies newsletter. Putting all those thoughts together, I came up with this card. To finish it off I used Rock Candy stickles to sparkle up the rosette.
