The Play Date Cafe #103
I had a look at the scrumptious colours for this weeks' PDC challenge, they are Rust, Storm and Deep Sea and I just wanted to play! And I knew it was going to be a CAS design. At the same time I saw that it actually fitted into one of the sketches over at Hero Arts so I think I will submit it there too, why not!
Here is what I came up with:
Paper: cardstock (PTI - except the blue layer, unknown); Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; Versafine Smokey Grey
Stamps: Hero Arts (CG811; CL488)
Other: Diamond Stickles; Glossy Accents; Dimensional Tape
Lisa and I went to visit an art store which is about 50 minutes drive away and they had some Copics and we stumbled across three very pretty rusty brown colours, so we both purchased them. I came home and decided to play with them straight away, and I also experimented and added some "Chinese Orange" into the mix and I just love the result (which of course you can only see up close and personal)!
I hand cut the banner using first a mat of my darkest blue cardstock on hand, and added a piece of PTI's grey cardstock (love it), which I repeatedly stamped with a Hello sentiment using Smokey Grey ink from Versafine.
I added some stickles to my flower because I wanted a bit of shine, but for some reason it kind of turned goldish, and finally a bit of glossy accent to the flower centre (although I wanted some pearls there but mine were all too large).
That banner is adhered to the note card with some dimensional tape.
It's a BEAUTIFUL day here in Houston!
Wishing you a fantastic day! Nearly the weekend!
