Goodness - two posts in two days .... I told you I missed you! Volleyball is a big part of my life in the springtime - following my daughter as we travel the state together...enjoying every minute with her. However, I am not one who can just sit. Like you ... our minds and hands are always crafting or visualizing our next project. So my idle time, while she is not on the court, has been spent crocheting ... sweet delicate white hearts have been my latest love. I use the softest of yarn which makes them so elegant. You'll see one featured on today's project and more in my ETSY shop. The Play Date Cafe has a color challenge this week combining purple, green, and grey. Isn't this wallpaper fabulous?! Don't miss seeing the work of the design team ... you'll enjoy the visit!
I began with Very Vanilla card stock and layered on scraps of decorative papers .. one a simple newsprint the other in shades of purple. The print in the lower right is created with the gorgeous Bella Toile background stamp and Old Olive Classic Ink on Very Vanilla card stock. This background stamp is wonderful and makes such a beautiful background pattern ... I love it. I also used Basic Gray Classic Ink paired with a script background stamp ... En Francias to create a space for your eye to rest. My sentiment is retired but I love the message it sends. The layered butterflies are made from a creme felt and a fun decorative paper ... cut with the Beautiful Wings die and embellished with a pearl.
My seam binding was dyed with reinkers in shades of green and the button is from the Designer Buttons - Brights collection. While the antique lace adds a vintage feel, the soft white crocheted heart is the perfect compliment to a shabby bow.
I enjoyed creating this for you and my thanks to the Play Date Cafe team for the colorful inspiration!
