Just because and PDCC 43

After struggling with a DT project which was way outside of my comfort zone, I decided to play for a little while this afternoon – just because!!  Happily, the colours I used (which are some of my favourites) just happened to fit into this week’s Playdate Café Challenge, which is this colour scheme.


21 August 2010 enjoy

It doesn’t look quite straight, but it is – it looks that way because I mounted the top layer onto thick foam tape for a change – the scanner has obviously struggled with the 3D effect.

All Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous) stamps, with Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage and Stormy Skies, then some Adirondack Pool added.

This is another scrapling I made quickly, yesterday.

  1. Gorgeous Cath, love these colours too!Funny how creative you can be when you are meant to be doing something else lol, thats how my PDC card came about, I was meant to be doing a layout (which rarely do unless forced) for tomorrow using papers and colours I would NEVER use!!Sarah x

  2. Love the idea of the scraplings, being able to use all my little bits on a small piece of art. Love your card too, nice seeing this image dones in some different colour combinations. Tracy Evans x

  3. Gorgeous! Love your scrapling and your card. The colors in your background are blended beautifully. I find that if I stop and play it rejuvenates my design mojo which helps me finish whatever I am struggling wiht. Hope that's what happened for you! Thanks for joining us again at the PDCC.

  4. I do love your style. Both of these work well, with little details that 'make' them. Love the arrows on the first which guide you round (and the clock hands)and the tiny eyelets on the second.

  5. Both gorgeous Cath, I especially love the umbrella man that is such a great stamp…..envy sitting in here……..sigh sigh.Have a great Sunday, Annette x

  6. Ooh this is lovely! I I really like the diamond background you've used behind the wording. Your scrapling is great too. I am hopeless with this kind of style. I hope this helped you get back into your DT project! Sometimes it pays to work on something completely different. Thanks for joining us this week at the PDCC!
