2nd post today - PDCC 21

For my second post today, I have entered this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge .  The colours this week are:
How pretty is that?  However, I've been "umming and aahing" all week, not sure what I could use to take part.  Sure, I've got a few (just the odd one or two, right!) flower stamps....

So today (after we lost the football - see previous post - BOO HOO) I got started.


I grabbed a medium sized tag, and one of my favourite Stampington stamps which I inked with a very pale (i.e dried up, doesn't really show) pale pink Sea Shells ink pad and Wild Plum (Adirondack)and sprayed the stamp with water, before stamping on the tag.  I love this technique.

I added some scattered straw distress ink round the edges of the tag - I don't seem to have any genuinely pale yellow inks - well, I must have somewhere, right - anyone care to tell me where?!

I finished it with a Wendy script and some pale pink and white Prima flowers.

I scanned this one, rather than set up the camera to transfer again!!

Please scroll down to see what else I did today.
