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.
Or not. Goodbye, fair teacups! Well, I had already cut out the shocking pink frame, the wings and the sentiment tag. What to do? Luckily, the same Crafty Secret sheet had this precious little birdie who fit the bill (tee hee - bill - HA!)! So I plucked him up, stuck him to the back of the frame and proceeded to color the wings and crown. Mind you, I had no mustard cardstock and haven't missed it. ha. So I pulled out a Copic marker (Honey) which is about as close to mustard as I could find.
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!
