Bonjour friends. I've decided to go "french country" this week for the Play Date Cafe. My new WaltzingMouse stamps arrived and there is nothing quite like receiving an envelope labeled "royal mail". Makes me feel like a princess. ;)
Our color story this week in the Cafe is beautiful:
Raspberry, Harbor, and Honey Mustard
I combined the color story with the sketch from WaltzingMouse. Lots of stamping for this one and be warned: the Chicken Wire background is going to get a workout. Love it!
A note about the inks I used: My "honey mustard"is the new Lido ink from A-Muse Studio. It's a perfect gold. The "harbor" is Eucalyptus. I use a lot of distress ink on my projects and I have learned to distress the elements before I stamp images. Ex: Die-cut oval, distress, stamp with frame and rooster. I'm currently in love with Creamy Brown ink from ColorBox and typically add PTI Chamomile tea-dye ink on top as well.
We hope you will stop by the Cafe and enjoy a "cup of creativity" with us. We have a very special guest this week that you do not want to miss! Happy stamping!
