Play Date Cafe Challenge 30

Beautiful pastel pink, yellow and green, are Mona's choice of colours over at the Play Date Cafe. I have coloured the background using Shell Pink Adirondack ink and then stamped Hero Arts 'Heart Flourish' over the top. The main image is Hero Arts 'Posy Sketch' and has been coloured using Copics. The border punch is Martha Stewart; the corners are Cuttlebug dies and the bling has been coloured using Copics.

My Latest Phase....... covering wooden blanks. Although time consuming, I find it very therapeutic and I've already got a wish list for some more! The green drawers are from Kaiser Craft and have been decorated with their 'Devonshire' papers and Olive paint. The smaller organiser is also Kaiser Craft and has been decorated with their 'Gypsy Sisters' papers, Magenta paint and wooden flourish. The taller organiser is from Kars.

Play Date Cafe Challenge 29

Sarah's colour choice, this week, at the Play Date Cafe. I finally got around to using the huge Elusive Images butterfly, from their 'Patchwork Butterfly' plate, that I bought several months ago. I coloured the butterfly with Derwent Colour Soft pencils and then cut it out - I can't believe I didn't snip the antennae off! The background was creating using Adirondack Citrus ink and then various stamps from Laxmi Designs. The leaf around the edge is also from Laxmi. The sentiment stamp was from the same Elusive Images plate as the butterfly.

Play Date Cafe Challenge 28

Gorgeous combination of colours, this week, from Julie over at the Play Date Cafe. I have used SU 'Polka Dot' background stamp; Hero Arts 'Collage Friend' stamp and an Inkadinkado butterfly from the 'Gemstone Insects' plate. I cut a Spellbinder's 'Fancy Tag' die cut in half to make the scrolled edge and used some silver bling and a silver ribbon buckle from SU. The black and white ribbon has been lurking in my stash for ages.
