Play Date Challenge



This weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge is to use blue or green, chocolate brown,tan and cream.  I struggled with how to interpret this for my ongoing personal Christmas cards only challenge, but this is what I came up with.  The ink for the background (WV's Studio 490) is a new achival ink in sepia, stamped straight onto a scalloped cream card blank.  The grungepaper flowers (WV of course!)are coloured with distress inks in a variety of faded jeans, brushed corduroy and shabby shutters.  I used some rock candy distress stickles in the middle of the smallest flower and held them all together with a blue brad.  To offset the flowers I found a small tag which I stamped in faded jeans with a Paperartsy greeting and added some glitter and blue fibres.  Now it's finished, I quite like it, lol!

Isn't it funny how some colour combos are more of a challenge to us than others! It's like we have an internal palette!! Love what you've done with these though, great grunge flower
