Play Date Cafe #43 A Touch of Summer

This week The Play Date Cafe has a refreshing summery photo with Turquoise, Green and Citrus to inspire you. We've also got a brand new sponsor! The PDCC welcomes Creative Inspirations Paint as this weeks sponsor!  I just love these shimmery paints! Just open, shake and create! The winner of this weeks PDCC Challenge will get to choose 12 jars of paints courtesy of Creative Inspirations Paint!  Click my photo to get a better view of the shimmer.


Since I design for both the PDCC and Creative Inspirations Paint, I just happened to have the colors on hand to incorporate into this weeks PDCC challenge.  Some other members of the Creative Inspirations Paint DT will also be playing along with this weeks PDCC challenge - more projects to inspire you! Creative Inspirations Paint's Design Team A was issued a "summer stroll" theme this week on their Blog, so it fits in well with the wonderful inspiration photo from the PDCC.

The Boat image from ISC is stamped in Black Archival on White card stock, then colored with Creative Inspirations Paint.  Staying with the color story, I used Emerald and Turquoise to color the boats, then added some Mellow Yellow, Blue Ice and Sea Foam to finish coloring the image.  I used Sprout Bazzill Canvas for the Background, embossing with a Texture Fades Folder.  To pull the image and panels together, I tied some square knots into some Black Hemp, then added some old Fishing Fly Line and a Fly that belonged to my grandfather. 

Here's this weeks Color Story Photo,we'd love for you to play along with this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe, you can find all the details here on how to enter.  If you upload to any online gallery please use keyword PDCC#43 so we can find your creations!
