color combo challenge #246

hello crafty friends! 

the new color combo #246 is LIVE! the colors this week are grey - red - buff - light blue - space cadet and here is what i came up with - 

"two girls in LONDON"




 i used all five colours from the colour palette on my page. 
my creative boost came from inspiration photo #4: focus on theme: postal / air mail (i created a travel layout, using postal themed papers, images and stamps). 

 other inspiration: inspiration photo #1: framed background (idea: checkerboard design); inspiration photo #2: red glitter stickers and flourishes (idea: glittered letters). 

and here are some close ups from my project:

i started with white cardstock, THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP "solace" doodling template and panpastels - light blue and light grey.


after the fixative spray has dried i added dimensional birds with modeling paste and THE CRAFTER'S WORKSHOP "flying geese" mini template.


i did a lot of stamping using PAPERMANIA's "portobello road" stamp set and MAKING MEMORIES travel stamp set.


the lovely papers are also from PAPERMANIA's "portobello road" collection.



 i used a lot of stamped images to decorate my picture. 


the red glittered letters are from MAKING MEMORIES sticker alphabet. 


i hope you enjoyed today's post!

hugs 'n smiles,
