This week's color story at the Play Date Cafe Challenge was a real challenge to me. I really loved the inspiration photos, but after hours (or at least so it seemed) without getting anywhere, I was about to give up. No "eureka-moment" where everything suddenly fell into place, but I did cross the finish line, and I am actually pleased with the result myself:
On the card base I stamped the Hero Arts Old Letter Writing (S4878) with Distress Ink Pumice Stone, then layered pieces of patterned paper, vintage book page, and lace. The Flower is from the Hero Arts clear set Sweet Thread Labels (CL510). I stamped the flower with Versamark ink, and clear embossed, then added Distress Ink Scattered Straw with a sponge, and misted with a mix of water and Ranger Perfect Pearls. Cut out, and lightly distressed the edge with Walnut Stain.
Hope your weekend was a good one too!
