The Play Date Cafe.......Challenge 47

Have you heard of the challenge site The Play Date Cafe?  I LOVE it...but this is the first time I am playing along!  They have some awesome color challenges and you can do anything...altered art, a page, a card, etc.  It's a pretty fun challenge.  And hey...isn't that all about???  You need to stay true to the colors as much as possible...if you add any they need to be neutral. 

Here is the inspiration photo for this week....I LOVE this color combo and it's not one that I would think to use!  Plus reminds me of Santa Fe, NM for some reason.  Don't ask..I's not an adobe, etc.  I think it's the turquoise in there possibly, mixed with the red. 

So, I decided to just play around ...hee hee...yes there was a pun intended on that!  I have been buying stretched canvas, but not doing much with them.  So, I decided to drag one out!!  And my intent on this was to not be perfect...just be fun.  

here are a couple of close ups
sprayed these with a little chalkboard glimmer mist
Supplies: Stretched Canvas, Unity Stamps, Distress Ink, Tattered Angel Chalkboard Mist, 
Acrylic Paint, Fabri Tac, Mod Podge, and Glue Dots adhesives, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Memento Ink, Prima and Martha Stewart flowers

So, if you get stuck, a color challenge might be what you need!!!  Have a great rest of the weekend...I am off to clean house a bit and then get some scrapping done!!!

Have a Scrappy Kinda Day!!~~Katrina
