Hi There! It's time again for a new Creativity Challenge at The Play Date Cafe :) I chose this beautiful bouquet of flowers Courtesy of Martha Stewart for this week's inspiration photo & my DH created the graphic :) I was really drawn to the beautiful mix of lavenders & purples. This week, Kristen Powers of Kpink is our Celebrity Designer/ Sponsor!
I made this Mother's Day card showcasing these pretty purple hues.I don't have much purple DP in my stash so I needed to create my own. I pulled out this old SU' set dating back to 1998 to create the stamped background paper. The roses & leaves were stamped in 2 steps. For the rose images: First, I stamped the "bottom" layer of the rose by inking up the image with SU" Pale Plum ink then, stamped the "outer" layer with SU' Rich Razzleberry ink. For the leaves, I first stamped the "bottom" layer by inking up the leaf image with SU' Mellow Moss ink then, stamped the "outer" layer with SU' Old Olive ink. So EASY & TOTALLY custom :)I need some practice at sewing circles & ovals! LOL :) These beautiful Prima roses are so vibrant & rich in color - don't you think?
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 PDCC24. 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.
