Play Date Cafe Challenge #28

Look at the gorgeous color combination from  Julie for the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week.


Yummy pink, black, grey, and white. I love this mix of colors. I immediately thought of Valentines Day. :)
I even pulled out my heart punches and started a mix of hearts. But then I got distracted by this beautiful new stamp from Stampendous called Ranunculus Field and started of stamping that and playing with my watercolors.

The flowers are stamped using Versafine Black Onyx and colored using my watercolor pencils and waterbrush. I accented them with Crystal Stickles from Ranger.

The edges are sponged using Memento Rosebud. The background is a lovely stamp from Verses which has the entire How do I love Thee poem from Elizabeth Barrett Browning which I stamped using the Versafine Smokey Grey.

The scroll work is the Fleur De Lis Pendants from Spellbinders. The grey cardstock is embossed using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Victoria.
The challenge this week is hosted by Ruby

Our wonderful guest designer is Ashley Cannon Newell, and her blog is  A New Design
The rest of the design team created beautiful projects for the challenge. Go check them out!


Hope you get a chance to play along with these beautiful colors! Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Oh Wow, Suzz this is totally wonderful. I love the image and I'm sure it's almost the same (if not the actual one) as a stamp I bought at the Alexandra Palace Stamping exhibition in London, that I went to a month ago. I must go and check ...... and get it inked up, Lol!

    Thanks for more of your special inspiration.
