Play Date Cafe #178

Hello -

I'm back with another semi-whiny post! :) I'm having one of those days where I feel that I have time to play in my crafty space, but once I get there I struggle with creativity levels. I HATE when that happens. I'm thinking it could have something to do with staying up til midnight last night, but I hate to jump to conclusions. After all, I do great on not enough sleep. (You probably couldn't hear the sarcasm in that statement. -- I'm like a toddler who misses a nap - it's not pretty.)

I have managed to make three cards this morning, two of which I'm pretty happy with. One for Play Date.

These colors looked so fun and I did have fun just playing around. I had a tiny idea how I wanted my card to go, but mostly I just messed around layering and adding stuff willy-nilly. My rule for myself is to have fun. If I'm not enjoying myself, I have to leave my room. (Hence, I'm in here blogging now rather than staring at my treasured possessions getting frustrated with lack of direction!)

Here is my little experiment from "play time":
I partially embossed the accent panel using a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bubble Wrap embossing folder. I've used it the most in the last couple of days, partially b/c it's been on top (I know! LAZY) and mostly b/c I like the distressed look and "lack of a pattern". Not as perfect.
I used washi tape (pink chevrons), a photo corner punch on Honey cardstock, and Grey Wool stamped harlequins and paint splatters. -- just playing around.
Thanks for stopping by!
