It’s Thursday, which means time for another great week of colour inspiration from The Play Date Cafe!
You are the fairest of them all! Yes, you! Go take a look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself how gorgeous you are lol
Now that you know you’re gorgeous come and check out one of these fabby stamp sets from The Craft’s Meow! The design team were really fortunate to be sent some free stamps from them and I got one that I can colour, which as you know is my new favourite thing!
This week’s challenge colours are pastels, a real challenge for me personally with my bright colour preferences, so I had to work a bit harder with it, but it gave me the chance to use some of my pastel Copics.
This is the colour palette that we got to work with. Now I know you’re all going to ooh and aah over it because it truly is very pretty, but for some reason I just struggle with pale colours. I wonder if personality is linked to colour, if so I must be really loud!!
Jax describes these colours as mint, buttercream and taupe. This card is pretty self explanatory so I won’t go into much detail other than to say I did my first bit of ground work. I used three different shades of tonal colours, T1, T3 and T5 and then used my blender to remove some of the colour. I’m due to do a lesson on this at some point soon so it will be interesting to see what definition can actually be added. Her socks look a bit yellow in this picture but they are actually more of a vanilla colour in real life, you will just have to take my word for it
