Me and my clever ideas!!

I saw this design seed colour swatch and though how lovely the colours were on it,

I thought they would transfer really well onto a craft project, so i challenged Sam use any/all of these colours on anything but a tag, i also wanted her to use a flower as i knew this would be tough for her!

Well i don't know about tough for her but i really struggled! I wanted to work in my journal as i hadn't used it in a while.

Here is my effort

I use sage for the background, and used some sepia archival through a stencil, i achieved the caramel colour by using some 7gypsies tissue paper i had.

The flowers are by Paperartsy and i coloured them with a mix of distress pens and an adirondack caramel ink pad.

I had real trouble finding a match for the grey colour so i used a cloudy blue adirondack ink pad for the words which read 'challenge yourself'

Believe me this was certainly a challenge!
