Play Date Cafe #180 COLOR SPLASH


You won't be able to resist this color story at the Play Date Cafe. Our favorite challenge Color Splash week, with black, white, and magenta

There's even something to make it sweeter... the prize this week is a gift certificate to the amazing Freckled Fawn! My favorite washi tape is from Freckled Fawn. Just browsing their patterns will make you smile :)

I created a gift card envelope, with Mother's Day in mind. It's the perfect size to slip in a spa gift certificate (or a freckled fawn gift card?!) ;)

The little envelope is from my Simon Says Stamp April card kit (and so is the striped flower). I colored the butterflies with magenta Prismacolor pencils and blended the colors with mineral oils. I traced the border with my white gel pen, added some magenta Liquid Pearls, Black Diamond Stickles, twine, and embossed the sentiment.
stamps: Lawn Fawn "Flutter By", Simon Says Stamp "Flower Friend"

Link up your splash of Magenta over at the Play Date Cafe!
