The Playdate Cafe #72


Ok, in real life, these colors are true..well, the pink is a bit paler on the tag, but richer on the label..in real life thank what the photo looks like to me. I don't know if the camera needs an adjustment, or eye (lol) do! (Sorry, really punchy today--every critter in this house is driving me bonkers!)


But, speaking of punchy...this is not how I envisioned this project..it was supposed to be a flowery card, but first...I just had to play with my new Tim Holtz Butterfly dies!! I quickly glued two pieces of scrap together to cover them, and OMG! How fantastic are those butterflies!!! It wasn't until I went to put them in my little "pieces-parts" drawer for future use that I realized; they were Orange and Blue..so I just had to use them!
I had also ordered Tim's new Labels stamp set...so the Florist one seemed a natural fit...and then earlier this week I used Penny Black's Brushstroke Lily, which was still on my desk, so that became the main image. It is a technique showcased by Tim Holtz on his first DVD, using Adironadack Inks and a water mister. Very cool, particularly on the Brushstroke images! The tag background and the label background are DI Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet, with Broken China around the edges. The Adirondack Inks are Denim, Bright Orange and Terra Cotta. Not real crazy about the blue stems, but what are ya gonna do? So..Ta da..my Play Date Cafe entry for the week. Now hop on over to see what everyone else has created using the fab colors of Orange, blue and Pink! Have a great weekend everyone!
