Play Date Cafe 28


Haven't had a lot of time to play but decided to give myself an hour to create an entry for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge. Black, white, grey and dusty pink. A combo that has a designer feel to it. I can imagine an interior room being styled in these colours. Anyway, I didn't go that far, just a card lol.

I punched out some squares and adhered them to the card. I punched 1" diameter circles in pink and stamped then clear embossed the sentiment. Yup, I've kept it minimal again, trying for that simple, dramatic look, I so favour.

Hoping to get myself over to Port Sunny on Saturday to the Stamp fair. Crossing fingers I don't go quite as frenzied as I did last time. Just keep telling myself, I don't need every stamp design I see! For all my local blog followers, hopefully I'll see you there :)

Fab use of this week's colours. I love the geometric design and the way you've replaced one of the circles with the sentiment. You've certainly achieved the 'simple yet dramatic look'. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday x

This is what I like.... it is straight, no curves and go around, just plain good craft, wonderful idea and I love that stamp with the broken surface, I have one like it from Crafty Individuals and use it very often.
