Believe it or not - Navy, Hot Pink and Mustard?????

These are the colours for the Playdate Cafe Challenge this week!
Not colours that you would immediately think of combining.

Anyway, I had a go and made a tag:
Inks used are Faded Jeans and Wild Honey Distress Inks and Raspberry Adirondak.
Stamps are Lavinia, Elusive Images and Cavallini.
Martha Stewart butterfly punch and background is a Tim's texture fade.
I like how the mustard and blue inks have blended to a matching green (as you would expect really! LOL!)
Must dash now as I have some holiday packing to do.

I love your tag! I'm not sure I've ever seen one that's even similar. The colors do work together beautifully....a veritable rainbow of DI's. Perfect with the embossing on the tag, too.

This is *beautiful*! I never would have known you were trying to use a wonky color combo, which is quite a tribute considering the challenge, LOL! Love it!

Oooo this tag is scrummy! You've blended the colours beautifully. And I'm envious of your embossed TH folder haha. Hope you have a fun time wherever you're going. I'm off after the Bank holiday to London for a few days break and will most certainly find myself near Harrods & Laduree haha :)

I love the "water color" look to so many of your tags and cards. Very attractive.
