Play Date Cafe - 66 - colour splash

As soon as I saw this week's Play Date Cafe challenge was a colour splash (one of my favourite themes) I knew I HAD to make time to enter this week - it has been too long since I managed.

This was the amazing inspiration:
I LOVE lilac and purple....

I cut a piece from the Paddington 7 Gypsies pad I recently got, as they are all black/white or white/black designs, fixed it to a card.

Cut the Tim Holtz stylised canvas label that I sprayed purple last week and didn't know what to do with it - it's kind of wristwatch shaped, don't you think (well, before I cut it, it was...)

Stuck half to the top and half to the bottom, stamped a clock (Paperartsy) cut that in half and stuck it to the canvas (killing time, get it?!)

Ok, it's just me then....
