Mo's Digital Challenge #15

Oh my! This is a real toughie for me this week.  Lisa has chosen a colour challenge for us all, and challenge is the right word, as far as I am concerned.  These are the colours:

Now, don't get me wrong - they're all very nice colours in their own right, but this is not a pallet I am used to working with at all.  Aubergine (Eggplant) is one of my favourite colours, but I would be more likely to team it with mustard and olive green, than blue and amethyst.  It's just my preference.  After much deliberation, and lots of 'umph'-ing and 'grrrr'-ing, this is what I've come up with.  I'm not sure how well I've interpreted the challenge this week but, hey, they can't all be easy, otherwise it wouldn't be called a 'challenge', now would it?

This is Mo's 'Sorry Shanna', who is a real sweetie, don't you think?  I don't think I've captured her dress very well this week, but my excuse is that I'm not really feeling up to par and my hands are very painful at the moment.

All the papers, with the exception of the scalloped circle, are digiscraps that I've downloaded from the web. After a bit of research (because I'm hopeless at keeping notes) the kit is 'Betty' by Lynn Grierson, available at Designer Digitals.  The great thing is that you can download just the papers and don't have to have the whole digital scrapbooking kit.  And I love the papers.

The flowers were cut or punched from scraps of paper and edged with liquid chalk.  There are little rhinestones everywhere as I felt the card was rather flat without them.  I'm really not comfortable with this little creation as she is not my usual style.  But, like I say, it's a challenge and it's good to be out of my comfort zone now and then.

So, I hope that you like my take on this week's challenge - I'm off to Mo's to post it now.

Happy crafting.
