Play Date Cafe # 79


Its been quite a few weeks since I have had time to have a go at the Play Date Cafe colour challenge, but when I saw the inspiration photograph this week I was totally taken with the colours.

 I think my green is probably more of an olive than lime, but I love the green with the red.  As you can see under all the images I first stamped the Old Letter Writing stamp in a silver grey.  I then stamped Floral Brocade and embossed with silver pearl powder.  The image that's left is coloured with distress inks.
I am never easy leaving alot of blank card but the images here are so detailed that I didn't want to overdo it.

In the UK we are having a long weekend, we had Friday off for the Royal Wedding and Monday is May Day, the weather looks to be good so I am hoping to do lots of gardening and plant out some of my vegetables. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!



supplies:- Hero Arts stamps: S4878 Old Letter Writing. CG187 Floral Brocade. CL488 Congrats. Distress inks Fired Brick and Crushed Olive.  Pearls.
