PaperPlay Challenge – Coffee and Cream

The challenge on PaperPlay this week is to use browns and creams only on your card/project. Phindy’s Place is kindly sponsoring the challenge and the lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate and can choose from the wonderful range available here.



When I was about seven I went to ballet lessons but after a short time moved on to do something else. I still remember how much I loved twirling around in my pink tutu and flouncing up all the layers of tulle! So I was delighted to get a chance to use this adorable image, Twick or Tweet from Phindy’s Place, of a little girl trick or treating in her tutu and wings. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and added diamond stickles to the wings and copper stickles to the tiara.


Stamps: Twick or Tweet (Phindy's Place) & Flourish Background (Hero Arts).

On a piece of cream pearlescent card I masked a circle for the moon, clear embossed the Flourish Background and then applied some antique linen distress ink. The ground is a scrap of card left over from another project, which has water stamping (Flourish Background) and splashing on walnut stain distress ink. I just added some tulle and a button to finish.

I hope you will join us for coffee and cream this week at PaperPlay!
