A Splash..A Smidge...A Dollop of Color: PDCC #71


Wow! I feel like I haven't visited the Play Date Cafe in forever!! But, despite the power outage (or maybe because of it) yesterday afternoon, I was still able to get some serious crafting done. I had a ton of cards to work on (some will be posted later) and I kept looking at them with an eye on "Just a Splash" of color. For this week, the color was our choice, but just a splash of one, and only one! And, yup; failed on the first few...what can I say? I Love color! But, for St. Patrick's day, of all things, I managed to stop before things got crazy. So here is my "Splash of Green". I did add some Rock Candy Stickles to the clover, for a bit of shimmer/texture, but I think my bottle is out of the rock candy, and is only glue! LOL! I guess it's time for a new bottle, as I didn't notice any of the glitter in there at all! The clover was colored with pencils, as was the mouse, and DI's Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters were edged around the card. This will be heading to my Mom for St. Patrick's. I hope next week is green too, so maybe I can get the rest done early as well! So Hop on over to the Play Date Cafe and see what other splashes are out there! Have a great crafty week everyone!
