Play Date Cafe #177

The Play Date Cafe has an AMAZING color story this week. The combo can go so many directions for paper goods and home decor... and I think I need to paint my nails this combo as well :)

Say a yummy hello Midnight, Aqua, and Terracotta

And the winner for this challenge will win a gift certificate to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store

I created this ATC using a lot of old stamps in my stash. It's great to play around with some of my 'originals' :)

I don't own a "terracotta" color ink pad, so I dabbed the stamp in orange ink, then very lightly tapped it in red ink. It created a great colored mix of terracotta. First I stamped the background argyle pattern, then I stamped and embossed the lotus image. The embossing powder stuck to some of the background image, but I liked the splatter look so it didn't need to be fixed. The butterflies are stamped and fussycut, then adhered to the ATC.

materials: stamps: Hero Arts "Lotus Leaves", Marketstreet Stamps "Argyle", Martha Stewart butterfly stamp, The Craft's Meow "Blessed Easter". Inks: Memento "Tangelo" and "Rhubarb", Hero Arts "Soft Pool", Versamark. Cardstock: Neenah Solar White, Bazzill navy. Stickles "Orange Peel", Recollections navy emboss powder.

I'm so excited to see browse the gallery for this color story. Make sure to link up your project over at the Play Date Cafe!
