Primary colors

Look at the fun photo inspiration from the Play Date Cafe challenge this week:


I just loved the bright happy colors and the retro look of many of the images.  So I made a pinwheel card:

PDCC127

supplies: blue and white cardstock, dps from October Afternoon and unknown (green), red, yellow and green buttons and baker's twine, wood skewer, Hero Arts CG211 Magical Background, Adirondack Stonewash ink, CL456 Big Hugs, VersaFine onyx black ink

My pinwheels started out as 2" squares of double-sided papers.  HERE's a tutorial by Tami Hartley at the Hero Arts Blog showing how to make them.
