Play Date Cafe Challenge #150

Hello! This week's colors at The Play Date Cafe are so bold and dramatic!

This week, our challenge is sponsored by The Alley Ways stamps, who generously gave us all stamps to play with!

I got this set, perfect for adding texture to my art journal background:


I thought the bright pink in the palette was very dramatic, so I made this art journal page:

I saw this quote on Pinterest, and I think that it's something a lot of us can agree on. Even though we all have our own ideas of what love is and how to show it, I think we can agree that hate, discrimination, incendiary remarks, etc, get us nowhere.

Supplies this week--in addition to The Alley Way stamps above, I used a few crafter's workshop stencils (flowers), a few game board stencils (big pink circles), my brand-new Big Shot and tattered flowers die (for the dimensional flower). I used Mister Huey's spray mist (the pink) and some Distress ink (for the brown edges). The chevrons were stamps with Staz-on inkpad.

Please check out The Play Date Cafe for challenge and prize information!
