Play Date Cafe - Splash of Orange Challenge

The Play Date Cafe is having a color splash challenge - 'Color Splash' is simply black & white with a 'little bit' of color. And this week's color is orange.

I was really impressed by the card that Kelly from Lawn Fawn Stamps did for this challenge. You can see her card here. So, I had to play along with this challenge. I created two cards for this challenge.

1) The first one is using Lawn Fawn's Sew Lovely stamp set. I used some Luxe Designs Patterned paper. I love love these PP's. I kept the card simple with the image taking the center place. I colored this image with Copic Markers. Some buttons completed the card.



2) I did the second card using {ippity} Regal Greetings set. Please click here if you want to buy some of these yummy stamps for yourself.



I again used some Luxe Design Patterned paper. Everything is kept black and white except for the sentiment and the mat. I really liked how this card turned out. I am thinking of re creating this in other colors.

This card is also for the {ippity} Challenge for this week to create something with Scallops - IHHC20.

Supplies:
Stamp - Lawn Fawn Sew Lovely, {ippity} Regal Greetings
Paper - Luxe Designs PP, PTI White, Black and Summer Sunrise CS
Ink - Memento Black, Ranger Distress Ink Peeled Orange, Copics
Other - PTI Vintage Buttons, PTI Rustic Twine, SU Oval Punches, Nestabilities
