This is the colour swatch for this weeks challenge at The PlayDate Cafe and I was really pleased with the card I made till it came to taking a photograph of it. My card is a pastel green with some white embossing on it which in real life looks really soft and delicate but try as I might I can't get a realistic photo of it.
Here are a couple of close ups so you can see the Hero Arts Wheat Grass stamp embosssed in white. I have also made some paper roses after seeing the lovely ones Lin has been making. I love making my own flowers and after making lots of the Dawn McVey "poofy flowers" these are my new favourites.
Another couple of photos of the whole card.
The background card has been distressed with Peeled Paint, Warm Green chalk ink and some Hero Arts green Shadow Ink. I also lightly stamped with Rubber Stampede "Cosmos Flower". The blue ribbon was a gift from the lovely Pia in Denmark. I was the lucky recipient of a card from her for the May CCC. I will post it later in the month.
Sorry for the long post but I have been frustrated with my lack of photographic knowledge. I think I am going to go into the garden now to take out my stress on the lawn lol.
