Colour Combo

Found a wonderful Challenge Blog which is going to really whet my appetite as Basic Grey papers are a passion of along I went to Basic Grey Challenge and found this weeks' challenge was "Colour Combo" sponsored by The Cutting Cafe. The choice was out of Pink & Green, Pink & Brown or Blue & Brown. I chose the latter as I do love those colours together. I chose a favourite Penny Black stamp and created my little effort above. The Basic Grey papers I used were from the following 6 x 6 pads , brown from 'Sultry', brown floral from 'Boxer' and blue from 'Cupcake'. The butterfly image which is in a tan brown - not orange as it looks here :-( - was out of my stash of stamped images which I have collected over the years, I just altered it by touching up the white parts with a pale blue Pro-Marker by Letraset. Ribbon and jewels from my stash. I really enjoy working with limited colours as given free rein I am unable to make a choice. Please forgive the awful photography, didn't want to scan the card as the butterfly would squash, and photos aren't my forte.
