Play Date Cafe Challenge No 15
The Play Date Cafe Challenge No 15 was announced today and I just love these yummy colours.
I decided to make a cover for my Art Journal:
I stamped the medallion stamp from SU in chocolate chip ink on to kraft cardstock, then I inked in the centre using a rust ink pad and a blender pen and added some distress stickles.
I masked the medallion image and used a Tim Holtz stamp and navy ink to stamp some background patterns. With the mask still in place I sprayed the whole thing with Frosty night glimmer mist.
I coloured a page of text with Jo Sonja's jade ink and cut a zig zag pattern out of it to put on the bottom of the page. It looked a bit too bright at first so I made it a bit more "muddy" looking as below:
I spelled "journal" using mini alpha stickers on a Tim Holtz journalling tag and attached it to the page using a Tim Holtz frame.
Finally I punched holes with my crop-a-dile, and added some eyelets and ribbon, then mounted the whole thing on some rust cardstock.
Thank you to everyone who leaves me such encouraging comments - they are all appreciated. X.
