The Play Date Cafe #167 & 7 Days of Valentine Projects Day 5

Welcome to this week's The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge. This week our colors are Fuchsia, Canary and Sprout.  Our sponsor this week is My Creative Classroom. Be sure to check out The Play Date Cafe to see the awesome prize they are providing!!  I hope you will be able to join us this week. I can't wait to see what you make with these beautiful colors!!

Also, sadly we are saying goodbye to 2 of our awesome designers - Stacy Rodriguez and Jocelyn Olsen. We will miss each of them and their distinct points of view.

I'm combining this week's color challenge project with Day 5 of the 7 Days of Valentine Projects. I made a Valentine Art Journal Page. The background was made using Dylusions ink sprays in Lime Green and Sunshine. The heart was colored with Tim Holtz Distress stain in Pickled Raspberry.  I died the Doily and the flower trim (also Tim Holtz) with the Pickled Raspberry stain also. I drew the border with Sharpie Poster Paint Pens.

The yellow and pink fabric pieces in the heart are from Basic Grey. the larger yellow heart is a fun piece by Pink Paislee - when you color these hearts the chevron pattern comes out! The wings are colored with Lime Green Dylusions Ink spray. The buttons are from Stampin' Up. I was inspired to write a line from Alice in Wonderland around the heart. Here is the quote from Alice "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?" 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Here's a close up of the heart. The colors are so similar it's hard to see in the picture.
