The play Date Cafe - color challenge

These are the colors for this weeks Play Date Cafe challenge. I have been looking at these for a week now but having no inspiration whatsoever, until I thought of distress inks.



I thought these colors were quite masculine and I needed a birthday card for a man.



It's a simple card, symbolising maybe a Spring evening....

  3. Gorgeous card! I too struggled with the colors, took me some time to think of something and went to my PP. Love how you mixed your colors and the grass, bird and sentiment are perfect. Happy you decided to play again with us at PDCC!

  4. Oh-so-stunning!! What a beautiful watercolor effect you got with your distress inks. This is a gorgeous use of these three (rather tricky, I think) colors.

  5. Hi Jacqueline

    I love your blog. You continue to inspire me so much. I enjoy your work - so very beautiful. Have tried lots of different things but haven't managed to upload to my blog so that I can show you my efforts. My son is going to show me how before he returns to Brazil. Thank you for teaching me so much and inspiring me.
    Love Pam xx
