Bold Colors

We have a beautiful color palette to inspire you this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash. To play along, just use three or more of these lovely shades in your creations: Mustard, Orange, Plum, Dark Green, Pale Green and Dove Grey.

I managed to incorporate all of the colors except the grey, though admittedly, my burnt orange is used very sparingly, in the form of some ancient brads. I lucked into almost all of the shades in this 6x6 sample pack of Blue Fern Studios' "Eclectic Charm" collection, that my friend Elisabeth gave me last year. We carry the 12" version at Paper Anthology, but i liked the scaled down ones for my card. I did LOTS of distressing and a little bit of machine stitching on top. There are about a gazzillion ancient flowers and leaves, to work in more of the plum and soft green colors. I've tucked the last few pieces of a mustard yellow Pearl Swirl from Eyelet Outlet 

Be sure to visit Shopping Our Stash and see the beautiful creations my design teammates have made to inspire you, then link up your own colorful masterpiece!
