Play Date Cafe Challenge #66

I love the Color Splash technique, especially in photography! Soooo gorgeous! I was excited about trying my hand using the colors the Play Date Cafe chose this week: lavender, gray, white and black. I also thought I'd use the Emboss Resist technique as well, to really make a 'splash' with my color splash, lol!

My card for this week's consideration:
Recipe:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Whisper White, misc designer paper
Ink: Lavender Lace, Basic Black, Versamark
Accessories: white embossing powder, sponge dauber, lacey sq nestie, small oval punch, large oval punch, dimensionals, SU black ribbon, scallop corner punch

with flash on

You should give this a try too!
Join in at the Play Date Cafe!!!

Stamp Happy!

Love the way the lavender speaks out. Those are both beautiful cards...what do they say on the inside? I need a card for a friend whose significant other is dying of cancer....he is such a nice guy and he is grieving for her right now.
