Hi Everyone! It's time for another color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. Julie chose this week's color palette. I needed a Sympathy card for my dear friend Sue in Buffalo, NY who recently suffered the loss of her sister-in-law. I can't even imagine what she is experiencing& my heart goes out to her & her family.
I was drawn to the soft pastel lavender hues & creamy caramel colors in this gorgeous inspiration photo. It is really interesting & fun to see what colors trigger others MOJO focusing on the same photo.I was inspired to create a frame using a combination of a Spellbinders™ Labels Ten & Petite Ovals LG die templates by my Cyber-friend Beate. If you ever want to learn a new technique, I highly recommend you stop by her blog (click HERE) or you can find her at Splitcoaststampers.com She has soooo many tricks up her sleeve & willing shares her expertise!
To create the label frame first I sprayed Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to a piece of cs & dried it immediately with my hand held craft dryer, being careful not to start a fire or get a 3rd degree burn on my fingers! I wish you could see the beautiful shimmer left on the frame! Then I inked up & stamped a Waltzingmouse image from the Very Vintage labels No. 10 set (that fits flawlessly with the Spellbinders™ Labels Ten die templates), positioned & secured both die template, cut & embossed using The Wizard™. I also adventured & made my own Vintagey seam binding! Piece of cupcake :)
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.
