The Play Date Cafe - PDCC52

It's the Play Date Cafe's 1st year anniversary and as they're being sponsored by my favourite stamp company Unity I just had to play along!!

Julie chose the fabulous colour scheme of pink, orange and yellow for this week.....one which I've never used before but definitely will again:


I made my card using my neglected alcohol inks. I used a yellow, pink and orange to make the background and then stamped with Memento ink using a Unity stamp from Moments in Bloom. I left the ink on the alcohol ink background for a few seconds and then wiped it off to give a more subtle look.

Materials used: Papermania cardstock, Ranger alcohol inks, Unity stamp, brown Memento ink, Papermania paper, Making Memories sentiment sticker, Kaisercraft rhinestones, KI Memories ribbon.
Also used: cotton lace, beaded string, pins.
