Such happy colors from the Play Date Cafe this week:
I wanted to try using only markers for the colors in this challenge.
So I grabbed the three closest in color and started drawing lines at various widths over a masked sentiment. The lines definitely aren't perfect, but the end of one was a lot thicker than the others, so out came the "random" squiggles. I kinda like 'em. It reminds me of those thick sections of thread in a piece of silk.
Wanting to play some more, I went after a plaid background. Can I tell you how annoyed I am about the pink marker (which has only been used once before) loosing its steam already?! And couldn't this have happened to one of the 20 grays in the set, not the one hot pink marker? Anyway, instead of tossing the card, I decide to finish it anyway. Maybe it can give a flannelish look, or at least a little personality.
The last card with this color scheme is done with decorative tape and markers. Originally I tried a gray base so the white label would stand out, but the colors looked really dirty with the gray showing through. White it is.
Thanks for looking!
