So as to ensure a repeat of last week didn't occur, I am posting my entries for the Play Date Cafe Challenge and the CASE Study Challenge today! One extreme to the other hey!
The Play Date Cafe colour story was really daunting for me - I don't do pink! So, this was not an easy task!
Chupa at CASE Study has chosen another little gem by Dawn Woleslagle today and I don't really feel I've done it justice.
I think my mojo has upped and left for a while so apologies in advance - I'm not sure I'm really feeling this card?! When I look at it I can't see anything fundamentally wrong with it, there's just something missing or something that's not right? It might have something to do with the fact I've been staring at it for waaaaay too long! I don't know, there's always time to have another go at it hey! If anyone has any suggestions then I would love to hear them - it's bugging me now!
Ok, here is my card.......
I took my inspiration from the lampshade arrangement from the Play Date Cafe Colour Story, along with the colours, and the layout from Dawn's card. I tried to add a mixture of colours and textures like the lampshades and added some dimensional adhesive behind a few of the cirlces for a bit more interest. Those little rhinestones are a pale pink - you can't really see that in the photograph though can you?!
I wonder if my brain is too graphical for such delicately soft colours?! Hmm, could be it!
Thank you once again for reading my ramblings :) I'm hoping my mojo makes a swift recovery - watch this space!
