Play Date Cafe # 81 and some ATC's



This week at The Play Date Cafe Sarah Anderson has chosen the colour palette inspired by wallpaper, and my card is inspired by some ATC's I have made for the challenge at Hero Arts this month.  I made the central panel as an ATC and soon realized that it was to small and was perfect for putting on a card.

 I stamped the Art wording onto a piece of white card and then embossed, next I distressed with Milled Lavender and Bundled Sage distress inks.  The flower image is coloured with Copic Markers.  My background flowers are stamped onto a piece of grey paper and then sprayed with perfect pearls to give a slight shimmer.
 Here are my ATC's  (the right size this time) in various colour ways.
