It's time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge! This week's colors are Mint, Gold, and Leather:
Isn't her hat to-die-for? Love it! This week, we're sponsored by Technique Tuesday. I used the Think Vacation stamps by Teri Anderson to make this "beachy" card:
I stamped the little beach scene from the Think Vacation set, added some patterned paper below, and then added a mixture of sand (out of my kids' sand and water table) and gold glitter flakes to look like a tiny island. I thought the glitter made the sand look a little more gold, but now I can't decide if the mixture looks like an island or like dirt. ha ha. Here's a close-up:
I added some sponging to the borders and the sun, distressing, and sewing to give the card a more rustic look.
Want to play along? The winner will win a fab prize from Technique Tuesday:
You can link up your card or project HERE. The uber-talented Teri Anderson is joining us this week, so be sure to stop by her blog to see how she used her stamps.
Thanks for looking! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by. :)
