it's colour splash time again at the Play Date Cafe #40


And this time our additional splash of colour is GREEN!  We've not ventured around to this side of the colour wheel in colour splash before, and when I went hunting for an inspirational photo, I fell in love with this image!


How gorgeous is that fabric?  So your challenge this week is to make a black and white piece (be it a card, ATC, canvas, journal page, scrapbook layout....) with just a splash of green.

We're sponsored this week by Memory Box who make some stunning stamps.  Every member of the design team were thrilled to receive two butterfly images.


I layered papers, and stitched around them, adding detail to the word 'inspire' by stamping it in green.  I used the small butterfly image inside, which co-ordinated beautifully with the flock paper I found in my stash.


The 'Inspire butterfly collage' has incredibly tiny text in the background (I LoVe text!) so I tore a rectangle to layer under the small butterfly inside the card.


Have fun with this week's challenge, and don't forget to check out all the wonderful inspiration, and this week's prize, over on the Play Date Cafe blog :)

EDIT: This week's prize is the two stamps I've used here.  They don't appear to be available in the UK so head on over to the caff to have a go at winning them :)

Gorgeous project and colours this week! How funny, I so nearly did the same thing with the butterfly, without the funky additional text though (you always see the lovely extra detail - SO jealous!) LOVE your card!

Love the card Sarah and that delicate touch of green is perfect. I also like the fact you have added the butterfly to the inside of the card, nice touch. I love these stamps, shame you can't get them in the UK. Have a good weekend. Tracy Evans x
