Play Date Cafe - Shocking! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
Are you feeling crafty? Well, I've been working on design team assignments for the past several days, but now that I'm finished (woohoo!) I decided it was time to take on another challenge. I scrolled down to the challenges I have posted in the left column and stopped at Play Date Cafe. I wanted to see what my friends Julie, Steph and Mona had created. To my horror, Steph's term is ending. Boo hooo!!!! Luckily, I can see her amazing work on other design team blogs.
Now look at these colors. Navy Blue. Bright Pink. And Mustard!!! Oh, good grief. That is certainly a challenge, right??? But a fun one!
I found a cute little tag from Crafty Secrets that had blue and pink teacups with yellowish-mustardy tea in them. Perfect! All I needed to do was cut out a little white crown and color it mustard with my Copics. Easy, right??? So I spy this little "scrap" of white cardstock that is the perfect size to cut out the crown! Zip it through my Wizard and turn it over - oh no!! I cut my cute little baby teacups! Friends, I was mortified!!! There went my card, right out the window.
This definitely knocked me outside of my crafting box. I would have never used these bright colors without the challenge....but I kind of like it!
So did you play this week? Share!
