Play Date Cafe Challenge #66 Colour splash-Lilac

This week's Play Date Cafe colour challenge is a "splash" of lilac. I am sooo lovin' purple lately! Here is the beautiful inspiration photo from Sarah. You can check out the PDCC HERE.

Just a reminder about my blog candy HERE


This week's prize will be from our sponsor



BUT I think I might have used up all my purpleness. Ever get one of those cards/weeks where you are just not happy with the end result, but can't really say what it is about it that you don't like????



So I thought I would try again.....This time I added way more then a "SPLASH" of lilac and  SAME thing!!!! Ahhhhhhh



Even thought playing with my new technique of Copics on Velum would help me.....Nope!! oh well.


So I highly recommend you head on over to the other PDCC DT members...for they are sure to knock your socks off :)

Poor Trace - sounds like this was a stressful colour week for you!! You did a fabby job on both cards - you shouldn't have worried so much!! Hugs to you :)

Julie Ranae said...

So much loveliness all in one spot : ) Great job!

I love them both, Tracey! Beautiful mix of stamps on the first one and your flower on the second card looks so cool! I tried making 3 or 4 cards for the color challenge last week and didn't like any of them. . . .Purple will be much easier for me. . . .I hope!

Jaclyn Miller said...

I agree with Fee, your cards are great. I love that textured pattern you've created on that flower, so marble-y and gorgeous!

Colleen Dietrich said...

TRace, I have one of *those* weeks coming up next week, unless I can get something to work for me. I have already made two cards for next week's challenge and hate 'em both. So - I feel your pain.

Having said that, I think both your cards are sweet. I especially like the detailed closeup of the flower; it has so much detail in it that isn't readily visible at a distance.

Here's to keeping the mojo flowin'. :D

Absolutely perfect, TRace! You did such a great job for being a little stressed! Love all your embossing and glossy accents and glitter papers and... Well, just everything!

Two awesome cards...love the dots on the 2nd one and the sentiment on the first is just wonderful. I am such a lover of dots. Super details and great close-up of the pretty flower.

Maria said...

Love both your cards!!! The embossing is fabulous and the colors are gorgeous!!!

Ahh, Tracey, I WISH I had your problems! You're not happy with these cards, yet I think they are FABULOUS! I know what you mean, I have had that feeling before, but I really do love both cards! You've inspired me to play along again!

Michele Gross said...

So fun, so whimsical, so purple-licious! Love these! And just so I can have the proper supplies when you come over...peanut or plain? hehhehe

Andrea Ewen said...

Both cards are wonderful TRace! I adore the butterfly on the first and flowers are always my fave from the second card. Wonderful splashes of purple and super designs, Don't you love when inspiration strikes and takes over? Me, too!

Ruby said...

These are lovely TRace! I always find colour splashes a real challenge. I keep having to say remind myself, 'it's a colour 'splash' but I ALWAYS want to add more colour. I think your creations are fab!

Debgem said...

I think they are both wonderful cards - but then I adore purple!! I particularly like the one with the flower, so pretty!

And thank you for your kind comment on my "purple rose" card - this challenge was a joy to me :)

Ann said...

These are both lovely...remind me that spring is not far off!

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

LOOOOOOOOOOVE that you made two cards! They are both fabby--great use of just a splash:) I love that purple brad in the center of that flower--LUSH! LOVE IT!

Alice Wertz said...

Sarah Anderson said...

Love the effect you've got on the flower, it's gorgeous!
