Play Date Cafe Color Challenge



This is my submission for this week's Play Date Cafe Color Challenge. For this layout I used the Twitterpated papers from CTMH and the stamp set from the Twitterpated Workshop on the GO and the Felicity Constant Campaign Paper Pack.  The colors are Sorbet, Chocolate, Sweet leaf, and Colonial White. I used the Reflections How-to Book from CTMH for the layout patterns.
You can't see it here very well, but I made my own shimmer mist and sprayed the family title.
I hand-stamped my own background on the colonial white paper.
Added some ribbon
Another look at my hand-stamped background.
Close up of the second page.
I distressed the edges of the sweet leaf paper with chocolate ink using a sponge. I also hole punched the chocolate cardstock and layered sorbet cardstock behind it to create my own background and some texture.
I stamped this tree using the treetops stamp from CTMH and cut it out to make a die-cut shape for my journal. Leave your comments here and tell me what you think.

  3. OMG! I LOVE your idea of hole punching the chocolate and putting the sorbet behind it!! What tool did you use to punch the holes that they are perfectly straight and even! I've been wanting something like this! E-mail me?
