*thank you*...PDCC22 46

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, March 24, 2010 @ 8:57 PM |

Hi Everyone! Thanks so much to all of you who played along with last week's color challenge at The Playdate Cafe. So many pretty creations. This week Julie has challenged us to use the following fun colors:
Here is my take on this week's colors:
I dug out some Fiskars scissors & put them to good use! I made the border trim & cut out the BINGO stamped image with 2 different decorative scissors.
To create this multi-layered tissue paper flower, I cut out many layers of Mulberry paper using the Spellbinders Blossom die, crinkled them in my hand then rubbed on a bit of Ranger Antique Photo ink. In this photo, you can see the shimmery Ranger Perfect Pearls that I applied to the flourishes. That powder is so easy to use & its effects are unbelievable!
I like the decorative trim around the BINGO image! I rubbed on a bit on Ranger distressing ink & after stitching it in place, I folded up the edges for a little dimension :)

That's all for now! I will be back at 9:00 EST today, sharing my creation for the JustRite March Mega Blog Hop. It is one amazing hop full of give aways, so I hope you stop by!

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 PDCC22. Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar), & Jean Franks Beck, our Guest Designer for March, to share with you for inspiration! I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge. Be Sweet!
