For the butterflies...PDCC27 56

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 28, 2010 @ 8:59 PM | , ,

***I have 2 posts today, if you are looking for my MTME post, please continue to scroll down - Thanks :)***
Hi Everyone! This week, I chose the colors for the Play Date Cafe Creativity Challenge #27, PDCC27. I found these darling little bird feeders in the gift shop at the Carlsbad Flower Fields & photographed them for inspiration :)Here is my interpretation of these colors:This is my first time creating with beautiful Melissa Frances DP & I am hooked! Can't you hear my wallet screaming???? :) I used one of my favorite background stamps from Rubber Stampede - Music Background to create the strip of music paper.

After stamping & cutting out the birdcage, I dressed it up with 3 of my favorite things - a bow, button & butterfly :)

I stenciled this lil' Spellbinders™ Flying Beauty using SU Bashful Blue ink then popped a pearl right in the center.

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. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC27. Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) & our Guest Designer, Jen Tapler to share with you for inspiration! I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: MTME Just For You, Hero Arts Birdcage, Rubber Stampede Music Background

Paper: Melissa Frances, SU, PTI

Ink: SU, Memento, Ranger, Copic

Other: Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities Flying Beauties S4- 123, Fiskars scissors, Creative Impressions ribbon, pearl, lace & button from stash
