play date cafe challenge #4


I'm not sure it's that easy to see this week's colours in my piece but I promise you they are the only colours I used paint-wise!!  When I'm buying a new product I'm usually hopeless at choosing which colours to start with so when I decided to invest in some Kaisercolour paints from Paper Artsy last week I picked this week's challenge colours - antique white, mud puddle and raw umber.  I love that name 'mud puddle'!!


Unfortunately the blue I picked up, sea breeze, was way to turquoise for the piece, so I picked up a more suitable blue from the local stationary shop this morning.



I also got some pearl metal from Paper Artsy although with the raw umber paint and creme de chocolat glimmer mist you can't really tell anymore :)


I used an old hardboard bookcover for the base of this project, added terra paint for texture then stamped into it and smooshed paint and glimmer mist around.  I had a bit of a 'wobble' about this piece earlier today but am feeling happier with it now it has the metal and watch pieces on.
