PDCC #129


Morning everybody,

A quick share today for The Play Date Cafe Challenge #129.
Here is the colour picture



Not only do I love the colour combo but my eyes were drawn towards the pillow. I have seen similar design pillows and cushions in different colours and I have pinned one such cushion on my pinterest's Inspirational board. So I took the pillow as my inspirational and made my card.
Here is my take on the challenge.


Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampers Select White from PTI
Stamp Set: Flower Fusion # 8 from PTI and Big Greetings from MFT
Inks: Basic Grey, Kiwi Kiss and Perfect Plum all from Stampin' Up! and Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories: Rhinestones from Kaisercraft

I inked my arcylic block with Basic Grey and stamped on the white panel. I used the back of the negative image stamp from Flower Fusion #8 and stamped second generation to get the flower base. And then used the positive image of the flower and full ink to stamp the image. I love the texture yet still one layer card except for the rhinestone.

Thanks for visiting :) Have a great week!

Ta!

Absolutely brilliant. I love the special effects. How did you get so smart? What is in Australian water, and how can I get some?

Love the softness of the stamping and how the use of the gray this way highlights the beautiful colors of the challenge.
