Color Splash

Hello there ... 
It's bank holiday here and un-traditionally for the UK ... we have had glorious sunshine ... it's been beautiful!
DH and I went out and sat in the sun drinking coffee and then browsed a few shops before he took himself off to play a few holes of golf ... which gave me a little time to make a card!

I haven't entered any challenges for the longest time but I saw that The PlayDate Cafe is having a color splash challenge and I really love them ... even though I don't get to play much I still look in every week and take in the beautiful creations...

So here is the color splash photo

I love the magenta colour ... though I don't have any ink in this colour and sad to say little paper of this colour either ... and I wanted to stamp and paperpiece ... 

I first stamped a background with a chicken wire stamp by Inkylicious straight onto my card ...
Then added some dottie Washi Tape

The rose is my La Blanche stamp again and I love how dramatic it looks stamped in black ink ... then came the paper piecing ... the thing is the paper I used only had bit of the magenta in it so I stamped a few times and then just pieced the rose together ... I don't think you can see it but I covered the rose in Diamond glaze too 

Two little corner pieces cut with a very old Provo Craft die completed my card and I'm just happy that I got to create today ... especially as the challenge finishes in another day!

I'll be back tomorrow with a DT project ... Thanks so much for stopping by

Have a beautiful evening/day
