Play date cafe 17

This weeks colours for the Play Date Cafe challenge were great I thought, until I tried to use them and found that nothing I did turned out right!


Meanwhile I had been making tags to cover art journals with, (see previous post if you would like to have a look at them) so I thought I might try one of those as they seemed to be coming together well, so here it is, mounted onto a card decorated with a Martha Stewart punch. BTW I met some people last week who did not know she had been to jail - how did they miss it?



I love putting little bits of things inside those Tim Holtz book plates and filling them with Glossy Accents to seal it all in.

gorgeous Chris - colours work beautifully,and I love your flower! After seeing them demoed last weekend I now know why everyone was raving over the punches - lady used the same one you have done to make a strip of flowers, punching both sides of a strip of paper .. unfortunately, she had sold out by the time I got to her stall )or fortunately for the credit card!)
Wiith any luck you will get your 3rd playdate cup!
