Playdate No. 2 | Vanessa's Take

Hello everybody!

Vanessa here with a card I made using the colors from the current Playdate challenge


This photo is so beautiful and I really love the flowers, but I wanted my take on the challenge to be very modern and clean without it looking too much like the inspiration photo. So I just used the color palette to create my card:

Vanessa Playdate2

I started with a white cardstock panel that I trimmed slightly smaller than my card base. Then I stamped the solid rectangle from Scenery: Rectangled & Triangled using Hero Arts Butter Bar Shadow Ink, Hero Arts Green Hills Shadow Ink and Tsukineko Angel Pink Ink. With Tsukineko Tuxedo Black Ink I stamped the words "happy", "my" and "friend" from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy onto the rectangles and adhered the panel to the card using foam tape. Now I heat-embossed the big "hello" from the same set onto pink cardstock and fussy-cut it. For more dimension, I used foam tape to adhere the word to the card. Finally, I adhered matching sequins and that little butterfly from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection. 

I hope that I have inspired you with my take on the challenge! Now it's your turn!
