The Play Date Cafe Challenge

The Play Date Cafe Challenge colours this week are just gorgeous and have been picked by Sarah Anderson.  I so love how the colours appear on these chairs, they would look fantastic in my garden LOL.  I find these challenges great for encouraging you to look through your stash and maybe use products that you may otherwise not use and would just gather dust.
I really love this Penny Black stamp and use it so often.  I found some perfect BoBunny paper to use too.  I stamped the image directly onto the paper with StazOn timber brown and sponged the edges with DI ink fired brick.
I have repeated this stamping three times, matted onto brown card and then onto a turquoise card.   I have also used a dabber to swipe across the card here and there.  To complete, I have punched out three small squares, added part of the same image, adhered to the card and added the Imagine sentiment.
I have also created this card using a PaperArtsy stamp, which has been inked with StazOn timber brown ink and stamped onto turquoise card.  I have repeated this stamping on the orange BoBunny paper and cut a small rectangle.  Both have been layered onto brown card and adhered to the main card.  I have added text from a wild flower book, buttons and punched two butterflies from red card.
I have also added some scratchy like lines using an old credit card.  To complete, I have added Distress Stickles to the flower head.
Finally my third stamping.  A simple stamped card, matt and layered onto co-ordinated card, ribbon and sentiment added.  Happy crafting everyone, Tracy x

Hi Tracy,
