Play Date Cafe. What a great name for a challenge blog. My kids are past the days of play dates, but the name makes me smile every time I go over there to play. Happy Anniversary PDC!
This photo makes me absolutely swoon. My three bridesmaids - whoa, blast from the past - wore red, fuchsia and violet raw silk dresses... so this is so me. But when it came down to playing with the colors I had a really tough time. You too?
Tried to figure out why and decided that since red, violet and blue are all so close together on the color wheel... it is the "glow" in the photo that makes it all work. So I had to go for that.
My go to for glow, distress inks. Don't own the PDCC named colors, but I took Spiced Marmelade, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Shaded Lilac and Chipped Sapphire and this is what I got! Inked up Neenah CS, cut it into two panels, spritzed some Perfect Pearl/water msit, die cut the words, printed the remaining text on the PC and assembled. It actually turned out as I imagined. Yippie.
This was a spin off of the same idea, using up the positives and some scraps of digital paper. Notice how my printer cartridge is losing its color. You know me, waste not want not.
Completely different look, eh? Crazy, this craft we love. I'm also playing over at Passion for Papertrey - yeah, they're back and worldwide now too. Happy Monday. I may be back.
