The Play Date Cafe #149


It's that time again! The Play Date Cafe has another beautiful color story. This week our color's are Orchid, Sea Foam, and Tangerine. I found a tag from my stash that I use to mop up spray ink from my art journal. This tag was a beautiful light purple color. I stamped the background using Tangelo ink from Momento. The stamps I used were from Unity - Faded Stars and Dream With Your Heart and the swirls are Dylusions - Background Love. I stamped the girl in Black Versafine ink. I inked the edges using Seafoam Versacolor ink.
