Live - TPDCC79

'Live'

I've been checking out The Play Date Cafe for quite some time - it's full of inspiration!  Their current challenge is 'Red Lime Grey' as seen in the photograph below!


What a colour combination!!!  I think the texture of the velvet on the cushions also attracted me to this challenge.  Anyway as I sat to consider where to start I knew I wanted to use this set of Tim Holtz stamps which had not seen ink 'til today.  I was having a bit of a tidy up and came across a lime green tea bag cover that also had a tiny touch of red :)  The hardest things to find were the grey tonings, as I always think it's a bit too much like cement and I steer away from using it!  One of my friends adores grey, she raves about it and it's so I've been warming to the idea of having a play with it.  This challenge has enabled me to give grey a chance and you know what, I do actually like it!

Hi Sue! I'm so glad you played along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe. I like that man with the umbrella, and those sequins lined up below him to represent a puddle (am I right?). So artsy!
