Some Colour Inspiration at Pollycraft

Yoohoo!! Just me, slightly late. What's new?! :) Quickly gonna try and get this typed up before I rush off to get ready for a girly day in Durham. I'm sure I'll be back with some lovely pictures to share with my new camera! :) Yeehhaaa.

So today it's time for a new challenge over at Pollycraft. The lovely Sheena has some colour inspiration for us!! It's a beautiful picture. So many gorgeous colours, lots of layers, a gorgeous shape, some cute little novelty items - birds, tea cups, tea pots, roses, spoons. You get the idea. This picture can inspire you in loads of ways!


You can use this photo in any which way you like to inspire your project!! I've tried to look past all of the pinks and whites.. and more into the greens and golds! I've used an older stamp - Earth Fairy. Love her and her simplicity. :)

I know what you're thinking.. woah.. that image is bright. You'd be right.. but I just had to try out some of the new Limited Edition 2012 ProMarker colours. Tropical Orchid and Summer Sun. So puurddy!!

I've kept the layout pretty simple, and used some new papers from First Edition. I've added some gold crinkle ribbon from The Ribbon Girl to pick up on the gold from the picture. I've used some yummy WOC flowers for the first time in ages. The sentiment from Amy R Stamps has been stamped in Soft Suede ink onto the image panel. Perfect fit! :)

So.. that's my quick post! LOL. I had massive plans of adding colour combos and all sorts.. but I've waffled enough. So head over to the Pollycraft Challenge Blog and see what the other ladies have created for ya. Lots of inspiration, let me tell ya! ;)
