Play Date Cafe Challenge #31

It's time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge!  The colors are from Julie this week and they include some of my favorites.   Here are the inspiration photos:

This project started with misting up some tissue paper with various shades of purple glimmer mist which turned into these flowers.  They were so fluffy I thought of decorating a container. I pulled out a little pail to decorate.  Unfortunately the flowers were too big for my pail.
I still liked the idea of using the pail and decided to swap out my flowers for Prima Roses that were a lovely white.The butterflies and the center of the roses are inked using glimmer mist. I sprayed it onto my craft mat and dipped the roses into the glimmer mist. Then I dragged a few sheets of white cardstock through the glimmer mist to pick up the rest of the ink.

Here is a view with the top removed:
The butterflies were punched out using my Marvy Uchida punch. The sides were stamped on the pattern paper using various shades of green, brown and light green ink. The flower stamps are all from Memory Box and the sentiment is from Paper Bag Studios.


Hope you enjoyed my little pail, I had a lot of fun creating it. (By the way I keep thinking of that song "There's a hole in the bucket Dear Liza Dear Liza" from some play we did during school. Isn't it funny what you remember?)

The design team created some beautiful projects, go check them out!  


Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous Thursday!

  1. The second I read the word 'bucket' I thought of the very same song, Sue!

    This project is absolutely wonderful. I really like where you went with it and it's a perfect representation of this week's colors!

  2. This is gorgeous, Sue! I would call this a "pail"--it's much too pretty to be a "bucket"! So elegant!
