What can I say? I felt like doing something crafty in my spare time yesterday evening. I'd had enough of watching TV & I wasn't quite in the mood for settling down with my book. I had a creative itch and decided to have a scratch.
So I logged onto the Play Date Cafe Challenge for a beautifully wistful choice of soft pastel hues and set about cutting, pasting and inking.
The challenging part in making this card was in attempting to add a soft enough colour to the seam binding. The only yellow ink I had was the Mustard Seed Distress Pad, which was unfortunately too vibrant. I had to dab a little onto my craft sheet, add plenty of water and coat the ribbon. It was still too strong, so I rinsed it further in clean water until most of the ink had seeped out, leaving a muted tint which matched this week's challenge.
Right, off to pack a rucsac for the weekend and sit down to some breakfast (or brunch, if it gets any later). See y'all soon. Pxx
