Play Date Cafe Challenge 11

This week's Play Date challenge  is Black, White,Gold and Silver and with the weather we've all been having I decided to have a bit of fun with this one.  I am watching it snow again now... or would be if it was still light enough to see.





I used as the base a piece of card that came as packing round something in the post, painted it white and stamped some Tim Holtz snowflakes.  I took some plasma letters and painted them with paint dabbers in the challenge colours, apart from the S which I had trouble with - originally the white just disappeared into the base piece ( before I'd thought about stamping the snowflakes) so I went over it in black, then didn't like two letters in black, painted it white again, only it didn't cover the black properly and then decided on picket fence crackle paint.  I added a couple of silver snowflakes and some cute snowmen pieces I've had for years without using... like I say, it's just meant to be a bit of fun.
