A Difficult Challenge

Hi Scrappers,

Hope you are all having a great weekend! I've been busy making my son's Easter bonnet for the Easter Hat Parade this week. Amazing what you can do with a few bits and pieces from the hot dollar shop isn't it?!

I've done the Play Date Cafe challenge for this week - the colours are:

In other words - black and white with a splash of brown. Now, is it me or are all these challenges getting harder?

I had some ancient, yellowing sheet music from the local op shop and washed over it with some watered down gesso. I added some splodges of Mr Hueys mist in a very dark brown and also sprayed it with some white Glimmer Mist. The patterned paper is some Graphic 45 and I had a very old, brown rub-on from Stampin Up which came in handy for this challenge! I cut it out and used some dimensional tape to put it on. It was hard to photograph it as the brown is so dark, it almost looks like black in some light.

Anyway, enough waffling - enjoy your day!

Thanks for stopping by,

Claire xx
