Color Splash...What's Not to Love?


I love black and white with just a 'splash' of color.
I always this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge
is one of my favorites.

I'm really excited to share with you that 
The 'Color Splash' Challenge will be offered
as a regular challenge every six weeks or so 
over in The Cafe.


You're encouraged to interpret which side of teal you
will land on....teal green or teal blue.
So I thought I would share a couple other cards with
variations on the theme.

This would have been a perfect card to celebrate the recent
'Blue Moon' that we experienced at New Year's.

How fabulous are these stamps from Memory Box?!
The background stamp is from Artistic Stamper.
For me, 'color splash' is about the 'hint' of color, but I 
thought I would bring in one more card that uses the
featured color just a bit more.

Again, using the same stamps but achieving a little different result.

So there you have it....a little teal in both green and blue.

I would really encourage you to get on over to
The Play Date Cafe and play along with us this week.
Whether you make cards, scrapbook layouts, jewelry,
crochet, knit, paint, digital name it

It's ALL welcome in The Cafe!

All of these are just beautiful! Teal (either blue or green) is such a wonderful color and it teams great with black and white.
