Up for a Challenge


Emma challenged us to make anything but a tag using either all or a combination of the above colour pallet.  We were also allowed to use, black and/or white and had to incorporate a flower - yikes!!


So this is what I made.  I painted the background with sage fresco paint. I swiped chocolate pudding through a circles stencil and bumped it with elephant. I stamped the script in olive green stazon. Painted the mini frame with elephant and chocolate pudding and stamped a smaller script in black stazon.  

The Paper Bag Studio image was stamped onto white card in timber brown stazon as well as the words, and to incorporate the caramel colour, I used a flower.

This is a beauty Sam! Definitely my sort of colours and, shame on me, I'm sure I have that lovely image and never even inked it up! Love the 'bumping' too AND you used a flower, lol!

Forgive me for saying Sam, when I saw the colours and your blog title I thought "that's not her usual colour palette - how's she going to tackle it?" And how!! LOVE what you've done with the colour combo and that shadow stamping. Round of applause for this one Sam. Hugs, Jenny x
