flowers on film for PDCC28


Julie has chosen such pretty colours for this week's play date cafe colour challenge, although I have to say that the air was pretty blue the first time I used my 'fanciful flight' die by hrh (his royal holtz!!).  I've cracked it now (ie worked it out, not broken it lol) so used it happily for this week's challenge.


I'm loving how the new distress ink colours fit in with these challenges!  Purely coincidental; or more likely, excellent palette of colours provided in distress now!  Spun Sugar was the pretty pink I chose to work with this week.


And I'm LoViNG this new film strip die!  Watch out for some design team pieces for The Stamp Attic using this.  


This week I challenged myself (in a comment on Joanne's blog) to finally make an easel card, and I'm really pleased with the result.  I'll definitely be making more!


Don't forget to check out all the other colour designs this week, they are all stunning, and we have a guest designer.  So head on over to the Play Date Cafe :)

Aww man...I was planning on booking for the 22 May workshop : (
Well done, you!

Hope all goes well for your demo this weekend. If this creation is any indication of what you may be teaching at some point for Wendy or Paddy, the whole of the United Kingdom will be a more beautiful place : ) xx

This is gorgeous Sarah. Easel cards are addictive so be warned!
Hope to join in this time after a hectic few weeks.
Love that butterfly which I was really lucky to win in the Stamp Man's blog candy.

I have just removed one of the comments that got posted twice, not sure why. And I didn't realise that blogger is going to show that a comment has been removed, it's looks awful! Sorry about that...x

Beautiful! Love the layers behind the beautiful butterfly! I agree that the easel cards are addicting and once you create one you want to create more! :) I was wondering about the filmstrip die and it looks lovely here. Can't wait to see more projects with it!
