Another Play Date Cafe challenge has arrived and this week it is based on the photo below:
When I first caught a glimpse of the colour palette I automatically thought of fall, high suns, geese and fields of corn ( I know, totally different than what the picture depicts). So that is what I went with.
I decided to dig out my brayer and give that technique a whirl again for this card. To make the sun, I cut a circle from a post it note and stuck it on my piece of white before I brayered on my two colours. I didn't have any corn or wheat stamps, so I used a stamp from the "Pocket Silhouettes" by Stampin' Up! instead; they were stamped with Really Rust. I had tried white ink on my trial piece first, but it didn't stand out like I wanted it to. I thought for sure I would of had a bird stamp in my collection, but no such luck, I ended up drawing those little critters. The sentiment is a rub-on from Stampin' Up! as well.
Lately I've been on a DIY embellie kick, my latest craze being stick pins. I have so many beads (enough to sink a large ship lol) I figure I best start using them up! Here is a close up of the stick pins:
They're really simple to make. With these ones, I just selected beads that went with the colour scheme, dipped the pin ends in a little bit of crystal effects, slid the beads into place and then let them dry completely before handling.
