Soft & Shabby


This week's colours over at Play Date Cafe are very soft and romantic. Pale pink & coffee. And, for a change, the card seems to have turned out in a shabby chic style. Well, I suppose the colours do rather lend themselves to it. Yes it's the same daisy punch for the flowers but this time I decided to ink around the edges of the petals to add a little more realism and visual texture.

another lovely soft creation. Love that you have inked this. Are you getting back to your roots with fabric that looks inked on the last project and inky softness on this one? We'll soon have you over onthe non CS side again.
