Just A note...PDCC23 29

Hi Everyone! Time again for another Creativity Challenge at The Play Date Cafe! This week Sarah is our fabulous Hostess who has chosen this beautiful photo as inspiration for this week's challenge!
Here is my "Just a note" card:When I saw the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge #23, PDCC23, this gorgeous digital photo that I printed several months ago came to mind! I absolutely love the various shades of blue! I used a Fiskars scissors to cut around the edges of the digi photo, rubbed a bit of Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink around the edges & stitched it on to my card!

Using the brayering technique, I inked up my brayer with some SU Bashful Blue ink, applied it to the Cuttlebug embossing folder then ran it through my die cutting machine! This has to be at the top of my favorite technique lists - the brayer/embossing technique - using your stamp pads along with ANY embossing folder - you can create ANY color of embossed paper you like!

I added a bit of Ranger Perfect Pearls to the distressed flower embellishment for a little extra color! It is a bit tricky to capture the beauty of the shimmery Perfect Pearls but it is rather pretty when seen with the naked eye! :)

I hope you can join along with this week's creativity challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Play Date Cafe & link your post to Mr. Linky. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC23. Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) to share with you for inspiration! I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge. Be Sweet!

LOVE this! I am glad to see you using your scissors. I haven't used mine in ages. I need to try them again. I sooo need to get a brayer! I forgot to get that when I was out the other day. I have so many embossing folders and this technique just takes it to another level. I just love looking at your creations girl!
