Play Date Cafe Challenge for me this week was photographing my project! This week the DT challenges us to use a color palette of Green, White, and Melon. (The melon part was the second trickiest thing... I finally went to the craft store and purchased some cardstock called "Watermelon" to be sure I had the color right, LOL!) We can use any theme, but it just so happens that the entire team created projects for the holidays, and the sponsor this week, Elusive Images, is donating some gorgeous holiday stamps as prizes. That totally put me in the holiday spirit!
I've had this idea rattling around in my head for a while - to take vellum, stamp on it, color it on the back, and make a candle surround. So that's what I did, finally, with this holiday-themed challenge. I stamped the angel image (from Crafty Individuals) in black on vellum, flipped it over, and colored the image with Copics. I used very bright colors of melon, green, yellow, and sienna, so that they could shine through the vellum. I did this twice (for the front and back). For the sides, I simply took two vellum panels and ran them through a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. Here's a better view of the side:
There's still time to play along over at the Cafe (until midnight tonight). Check out the beautiful prizes up for grabs this week, as well as a design team call. ;)
