Play Date Cafe Challenge #130



I'm so excited to be the newest member of The Play Date Cafe Design Team!! This is my first official post for The Play Date Cafe. This weeks colors are Dolphin, Salmon and Sea Glass. After seeing the inspiration photo I couldn't help but pull out my Flamingo #2 stamp from Impression Obsession.


I colored the flamingo with Copic markers and sponged on Versa Seafoam ink around the Flamingo. I used one of my favorite new products to ink the edges - a Jenny Bowlin Chalk Ink Edger in Old Road.

The winner of this week's challenge will receive an awesome prize from The Play Date Cafe Vault. Please check out the other inspiration posts from the rest of the design team and join us this week.

Stamp - Flamingo #2 - Impression Obsession
