Colour Challenge!

At Just Add Ink they put up weekly challenges so we can get creative and share with each other. This week's challenge was to use the following colour selection (neutrals are allowed too) --- it proved quite difficult for me as I don't think I've ever successfully used More Mustard!


So here's the result...

You can see I picked my two preferred colours to use lots. The other two are used as accents to mount the photos. My friend conveniently had a Sage Shadow/Mellow Moss top and the More Mustard toned in with the dry summer grass. The roses are made by white embossing on Vellum Card Stock and dabbing ink on with a sponge dauber.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Fifth Avenue Floral $53.95
Colours: More Mustard, Sage Shadow, Rose Red, Kraft, Whisper White
Others: Chocolate Chip Marker, Vellum Card Stock, White Embossing Powder, Jumbo Eyelets, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper, Eyelet Border Punch

Why not try the challenge yourself?
Happy stamping...
