Play Date Cafe challenge

I entered last weeks PDC challenge to help them reach 100 and I just happened to have a couple of projects that matched the colour challenge.

This week I thought I'd have a  proper go.. I look every week but never take part.
 This is the colour challenge for this week at PDC http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/

The image is stamped onto white card which has been spritzed with.. Sticky Fingers, Grass Green ,Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in,Garden Fairy, Hydrangea and Lavender Fields.
 I then stamped the image twice more onto plain white card, coloured and cut out the flower heads and decoupaged.,,, The image is water coloured with Whispers  pens, back ground paper is from  the Graphicus Guild paper pack. A smidgen of clear Glamour Dust added to the centre  of the flowers to give it some sparkle. Leaves punched out of the spritzed card using a Martha Stewart punch. Rubber Stamp by Hero Arts.

I enjoyed this project, love the colours and not ones I normally use... and whilst looking through my stash I've found some lovely backing papers ...along this colour theme... so guess I'll be doing it again!

The colours as usual haven't scanned all that well ...I must get into the habit of taking photographs!

Take a look ate the PDC blog there are some fabulous entries..

You have made a pretty card using the colour scheme - love it. You've reminded me that I have this stamp but not used it for a while!! So many stamps - so little time.

Thought of a great idea this morning while sitting in 'the making room' ... invite a couple of your craft buddies over to share ideas then you'll have to tidy the room up. :o)
