.... the Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC107 - is a colour splash, and they've gone for ORANGE! Yes, really orange! It's one of those colours that you either love or hate, I love it, but don't use it to often on it's own - so this was a bit tough. I really like the graphic this week!
I found some great papers in my large (huge) stash of designer papers - the same design on each sheet, but one in black on white and the other white on black. I cut the paper into equal sized strips and then layered them together to make a mixed black and white background. I stamped the heats and heat embossed them with clear powder - the orange dotty one was black and white to start, I simply rubbed the ink pad over once it was embossed. Finally a simple sentiment to echo the heart design on the papers with the word "love" popped in orange.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Sweethearts
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Tangerine Tango; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versamark
Accessories: Papermania - Inspirations Black & White Papers; Card and clear embossing powder from stash
Sorry about the quality of the photo - light levels are still low - I really will have to invest in a mini light studio. I'm off to check out this week's challenges from Less is More, Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the Craft Barn. Have you seen the Craft Barn challenge? They are challenging us to make a calendar with different themes on each month - I've been following it at this week is October (so week 10) - but I haven't yet done any pages. I'll try to get some done this week.
That's all for now - see you later!
