Play Date Cafe Challenge #143



Hello, and welcome to my first official challenge post as a member of The Play Date Cafe Design team! I am so excited to be showing off my creation this week, I love how it turned out.

Here is the color story for PDCC#143:

And here is my mixed media canvas:


This is a 5x7in canvas. I used various acrylic paints, inks, and gesso to make the background. I also used some book paper and masking tape. The flowers are hand cut circles from book paper, with buttons in the center!  On the right hand side of the canvas I used some Liquitex Light Modeling Paste through a plastic doily to create texture, I used a few Stampin' Up rub-ons, some alphabet stamps (manufacturer unknown) and the "Shine" stamp (Studio 112). I also used a script stamp and my own writing to add some interest to the background. Here are a few closeups:
