Play Date Cafe Challenge & Sunday Stamper Challenge

Over on the Play Date Cafe the challenge this week is to use the colours lemon, pale peach and peach.  Well I find these colours really difficult as I rarely, if never use these colours together but then again that's what a challenge is all about, so here goes.  I am now editing this post to add this card for the Sunday Stamper Challenge as I have no time left to make a further sample as I am now off to do a day in the garden and on my allotment (lucky for me the theme is letters and as you can see I have used the letter 'F' on my sample).  If you would like to see Hels and many other beautiful creations pop over to Hels blog here and take a look and enjoy.
 I used a stencil this week along with paint dabbers which I blended with a stipple brush.  The edges have been sponged with DI ink Dried Marigold.
I have used a Maya Road letter 'F' for flower or fleur, whichever you prefer, which I have again sponged with paint dabbers.

Below is my completed card, the background is 12 x 12 papers and Bazzill card along with co-ordinated buttons.
