a Crafty Individual Play Date Cafe


This week Crafty Individuals, a favourite stamp company of many of us here in the UK, is sponsoring the Play Date Cafe.  They very kindly supplied the design team with a stamp of their choice, and a wonderful prize package for this week's challenge winner.


Julie's chosen this week's photo inspiration.  I love this image.  I had a lilac and deep blue kitchen once, and love this combo with lime green, but there's too much metal to clean in this one lol!  


I chose to work with a deep blue and used Chipped Sapphire distress ink, with Peeled Paint providing the green.  My silver comes in via the diamant├ęs.   I was tempted to use a grey inkpad somewhere,  I just couldn't decide how!


Head on over to the Play Date Cafe to check out this week's prize, and to see the other designers' stunning pieces using this week's colours.

This is just so vintage-y and beautiful Sarah! Love the watercolor look, so soft and serene. You've got the softness of the colors and the wonderful hardware of the bling. Perfect combination!
