Play Date Cafe Challenge #40 - Color Splash

This week is a color splash week at the  Play Date Cafe Challenge and  Sarah selected a lovely photo for the inspiration.  

Onto the sponsor for this weeks challenge!



I may be a little biased... But I was thrilled that Memory Box is sponsoring us this week.  They are providing a lovely prize.  I am also posting another card over on the Memory  Box Design Team blog Outside the Box today with the PDCC colors following our theme this week.

The Play Date Cafe Challenge design team had a couple of beautiful Memory Box butterflies to choose from this week to create their cards. I had the additional advantage of having the rest of the Memory Box stamps to play with as well.  Here is what I came up with:



I ended up with three projects as once I got started I couldn't stop.  Here is my other project:


To see the third project you will have to pop over to the Outside the Box blog and take a look. :)
The acetate and stamping was fun and something I don't do a lot of. So I really enjoyed using the acetate on all my projects.  (After I had created my cards I saw that Savannah had used acetate too!)

One tip on the alcohol inks and the StazOn Ink, you can stamp the solvent ink over the alcohol inks after they are dry.  Don't try putting the alcohol inks/blending solution onto the StazOn or it will dissolve. (I didn't do it this time around but when I first played with these items together you know I did!)
