The Play Date Cafe Challenge

This is our photo inspiration for the challenge over at The Play Date Cafe this week.  My broadband has been down for 3 days, so it's nice to be back this morning.  Can't believe how much I rely on the computer until it is down for a few days.  Anyway this week I have made a card with these wonderful colours.
I have made a heart from tissue and a rubber stamp.
I have added hand stitching to the side to give a little more detail.  The ingredients for this card are:-
Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Just Word Art SCS033, Stampington & Company Scroll Heart Large.
Products: Adirondack Dye Inks, Red Pepper, Butterscotch., Papermania Sunshine Paper Pack, Buttons, Tissue, PVA, Threads, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and text from a Hymn Book.

I'm off to pop over to The Play Date Cafe to check out some great artwork, why not join me.  Have a great Monday everyone.  Tracy x

That's a great card, Tracy. Haven't done any paper casting for a while - it looks good and the stitching makes it that little bit more special. They are lovely colours, aren't they?

Brilliant! I haven't seen the papercasting technique used in a while. Great to see the texture it brings out in your heart design. Px
