playdate 83

 The Playdate challenge 83 was to use black, white and a splash of green - I've got the black and white, but you have to look closely to see the green! Mind you, my poor photo doesn't help, as there was very little daylight left and just using flash indoors totally bleached it out.
The square base card is black, the embossed panel uses a cutlebug floral screen folder, which was brayered over with black ink before embossing the white card - the dye ink has come out more grey than black, and a second impression without reinking gave a lovely delicate grey (but too delicate for this, so saved for something else).
The paper flowers use the 2 smaller flowers on the Tin Holttz tattered florals die, 3 layers of each, and a daisy punch centre.(see previous post for how-to details) stuck on with pinflair glue gel.
I used 3 flowers, with the green leaves peeking out from behind cut using an EK punch


  1. Love that brayered, embossed background, and your flowers are beautiful. Kate x

  2. I can see the green! A really lovely elegant card! Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe!

  3. You're on a roll with the flowers Veronica, lol! Aren't they addictive?

  5. That embossing is very effective and the flowers are just right - I spotted the green!!

  6. I'm glad you explained how you got that fantastic look to your white panel. I wasn't sure if it was vellum or something else. I LOVE how it turned out!! I'm going to have to try that. THanks for playing with us at THe Cafe!

  7. Your embossed background is fabulous and really stands out. Thanks so much for playing along at The Play Date Cafe.
