Play Date Cafe Challenge #41

This week at the  Play Date Cafe Challenge  Julie selected a picture of an Italian village. I was immediately inspired by the rich colors and the photo.  

After a few variations my village ended up looking like this.

Very simple rustic little village with lots of houses on the hill-side. Love this stamp and have played with it before but never finished it for a card so pleased to finally create a card with it!
Products:
  • Hero Arts - Village
  • Hero Arts - Life is not Perfect 
  • Ranger Distress Ink - Fire Brick Red
  • Watercolor Pencil - Golden Brown
  • Raffia
Now go take a look at all the other fabulous entries from the rest of the design team:

Looking forward to what inspiration the photo and colors bring to you.
