color combo challenge #235

hello scrappy friends! 

thanks to all of you who played with us at the last color combo challenge #234! your entries are AMAZING!

today i've got a brand new palette and a layout to share with you! this week's colour cobo is seafoam - copper - blush - ecru - brown and here is what i have done with it: 


this layout is based on color combo #235: sweet indulgence

to complete my layout i used all five colours from the colour palette and i chose inspiration photo #3 - focus on tools: punches. i also decided to add embossed panels from inspiration photo #1, frames from inspiration photo #2, and for my title i used inspiration photo #4. 

for my background i used DONNA DOWNEY' "poppies and peonies" mask mix 5, DONNA DOWNEY foam stamp "flower stem", PANPASTELS and RANGER brown paint dabber. 

the chipboard birdies and frames are from PRIMA marketing "songbird" collection as is the paper. i used two types of PRIMA alpha stickers to create my title - "typeset" and "textured stickers".

i used DONNA SALAZAR' spellbinders dies "shadow flowers" {to create the brown leaf spread} and "sprightly sprockets" {to frame my circle fussy cut elements}. i used UNITY itty bitty collection stamps to create extra embellishments for my page. i used "time flies" and "my heart belongs" with RANGER embossing powder "gold". the lovely rose is from PRIMA's new collection "pankita rose - summer mix".

the pearly swirls are from FLOURISH WITH A BLING "chloe pearl flourish antique gold". for the frame around my picture i used MARTHA STEWART "vintage floral" punch set.

 the small flowers are also from PRIMA - "miss godivas collection" - colours blush and caramel. and the doily edge is made with MS "doily lace" edge punch.

for the embossed banners i used TIM HOLTZ "bricked" and CUTTLEBUG "script" embossing folders.

i hope i managed to inspire you!
