Colour challenge




Over at Crafts4Eternity this week we have a lovely colour challenge. Michele wants to see blue and brown in your projects! I love this combination and don't use it nearly enough.
This week we are sponsored by Stamping All Day and the winner will get their choice of 3 downloads!
Nicky's downloads are stunning and she gives away lovely freebies when you sign up for her newsletter.
I used lovely kraft spotty papers from the Double Sprinkles cd and matching stripe papers. Added faux stitching and made some of my leftover louvre blind flowers using a marianne die and spectrum noirs to colour them.
Image - Teddy Bea
Papers - Sprinkles CD
Medium - promarkers, spectrum noirs and pencils
Embellishments - more of my recycled louvre blind flowers, ribbon, punched leaves and card candi

I would like to enter this into
The Teddy Bo challenge - say it with flowers
The crazy challenge - spots and stripes
Crafting when you can - anything goes
The Crafty pad - blue and brown
Inky Impressions - brown and cornflower blue (if this is not the right shade just delete me)
Sarah Hurley - recycle (my flowers were once louvre blinds)
DYSU - texture

Kitchen is still a work in progress but hopefully the workmen will be finished today. I could have emptied the lakes with the amount of coffee I have made them this week lol.
