Keesh's Colour Challenge #13

This week has been so busy and stressful, but today I found some time to be creative. I really love the colours that Keesh chose this week for her challenge. Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla. They work so well together don't you think?

I thought that the Embrace Life set would suit these colours. I have stamped the images in Choc Chip, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the flowers. It needed a little sponging around the edges which I did with Choc Chip ink, and a hint of Vanilla and Old Olive to frame it. Not Quite Navy is one of my favourite colours so I wanted it to feature a little more by being one of the main colours. I have torn and then rolled the edge on one side of the Not Quite Navy to add a little texture. I had forgotten how much I love this stamp set, it is so beautiful and elegant.

Have a wonderful weekend :)
