The Play Date Cafe has announced their next colour challenge which you can find HERE. Awesome colours for this time of year, Poppy, Fuchsia and Taupe. I don't consider myself very good with colours so I had to look at it quite a few times to eventually come to a decision.
Here is my interpretation in the form of a love card:
Paper: PTI cardstock (poppy & fuchsia), Taupe paper (unknown)
Stamps: Hero Arts(Floral Brocade, Large Blossom, Antique Brocade, Large Fabric Design, Antique Engravings & CL402)
Ink: Punch chalk ink (Hero Arts), Desert Sand (CTMH), Versamark, Versafine Onyx Black, Tombow marker
Other: Pearls ( from my stash), dimensional adhesive, Clear Embossing powder
I first stamped a number of different Hero Art stamps onto Poppy and Fuchsia cardstock with Versamark and some with Punch Chalk Ink. I clear embossed some of the images. I then used a square punch and punched out a number of squares which I then adhered to the taupe cardstock.
I stamped the butterfly from the Hero Arts Antique Engravings set using the Desert Sand ink and adhered it to the panel, lifting one of the wings with some dimensional dots. I then glued 3 pearls to the body of the butterfly.
I stamped the sentiment and added some faux stitches using a Fuchsia Tombow marker.
I am not sure that the taupe colour is showing up too well in the photo but that was the best that I could do.
Why don't you play along too, I have found this quite stimulating, making me consider combinations of colours I may not normally choose, but the most important factor is that it is fun!
Thank you for visiting, see you again soon!
