Play Date Cafe #72

Here is the inspiration for the challenge this week at the Play Date Cafe.  Really interesting mix of colors, don't you think?


Here is my submission.  I really loved the script and again, these colors were surprisingly fun to work with.


Can you stand another stab using Shari's stamped layered background?  That's where I started.  Here is a closeup of that stamped panel, showing the results of stamping using an acrylic block and distress ink misted with water, and also my subtle stamping of the allover heart pattern:


Supplies: white, BoBunny slate and blush dot cardstocks, Hero Arts S4878 Old Letter Writing, stamped in VersaMark and white embossed,  background made using spiced marmalade and worn lipstick distress inks, overstamped with HA H3786 Tiny Heart Pattern in worn lipstick, overstamped again with CL428 Earth Flowers stamped in chipped sapphire distress ink, sentiment CL497 Find Joy, flower CL374 Big and Small Flowers, orange button, pink embroidery floss
