We are just home from a great week in London, so time to give my feet a rest and have a go at another Play Date Cafe Challenge!
Two greens and a blue.
This was more difficult than I first thought, and I did struggle. I'm still not happy with the arrangement of the embellishments, but sometimes things just won't fall in to place. This is my second attempt, which I like better than the original, but I'm still not thrilled with. LOL!
All paper used is Ideology.
The flower is made using a PaperArtsy die, and I sprayed the top layer with Glimmer Mist and went round the edge with a Martha Stewart Punch and some apple green ink. There are two more "plain" layers underneath, but they don't really show here. It's finished off with felt leaves and a brad.
The background leaves are Wendy Vecchi and the bird on acetate is by Elusive Images.
The tag has some script in the background stamped with apple green ink and the bird image is by Cavallini. I put another layer of Martha Stewart punched paper under the green ribbon and again inked the edge.
Back to London - my crafty friend Paul has raved about Laduree macaroons in the past. Now I quite like macaroons, but can take them or leave them, but since we were in Harrods one day I thought I would try some. OMG - they are one of the scrummiest things I have EVER tasted - good job they are quite small and that I only bought 5 - they didn't last long. Will definitely be going back for more next time! Absolutely yummy, another addiction! Thanks Paul (I think) X
