color combo challenge #234

hello scrappy friends!

i'm so excited today as it is my very FIRST reveal as a design member for color combos galore challenge site! it is an amazing community with a weekly color challenge and great prizes to be won!

this week's palette is silver - gray - blue gray - beige - brown and here is what i have done with it:

"press PLAY"

this layout is based on color combo #234: moonlight serenade

to complete my layout i used all five colours from the colour palette and i chose inspiration photo #1 - focus on mediums: powders. i also decided to add inked edges from inspiration photo #3, and then some flowers and pearls from inspiration photo #2.

i begun with a white cardstock, stamps, the crafter's workshop "bricks" 12 x 12" template  PANPASTEL, RANGER "coffee" archival ink and silver embossing powder. i used TIM HOLTZ "Mini Ornate" cling stamp for the flying birds and MME clear stamp for the doily edge. the silver dots are made with RANGER paint dabber "silver"

i don't remember where i got the wooden boats from, but i thought they fit perfectly with the whole idea of my page. i altered the small one with embossing ink and TIM HOLTZ distress embossing powder "vintage photo". i used also MARTHA STEWART deep edge pinch "daisy fan" and "stars" edge punch to create the borders around my picture.

for the title i used WORDS OR WHATEVER chippie, which i altered with RANGER embossing powder "silver". the amazing flowers are from PRIMA marketing and the fished are stamped with INKADINKADO stamp and treated with embossing powder as well.

the paper is from WEBSTER'S PAGES "yacht club" collection and the trim is from the "all about me" trim pack.

so, what do you think - is this colour combination gorgeous?

come and play with us at COLOR COMBOS GALORE and who know - may be you can join the design team for the next reveal!

hugs 'n smiles,
