Scrapping Outback and Scrap our stash


The challenge at Scrapping Outback is to use all the colours in this photo plus one piece of chipboard.

Searching through my Counterfeit Kit I have come up with this paper full of questions plus a red chevron sweets bag.
It had me thinking of all kinds of ideas but I went looking for a photo and found one of me at 29.
We had just moved to the country and were happily married.

My WOW peacock chipboard deserved special treatment.
I misted it first, then embossed the body only. Rhinestones in a jade green were placed around his tail and head.
The blue circle paper behind it went so well with the curls on his plumage.

I hand sewed ribbon and 2 lots of lace along the side.
One was gathered on a fine ribbon and adhered at either end with green brads as well.
The red ribbon bows add to the feminine look on this.
I also hand stitched an oval around the title.

All the criteria are there for Scrapping Outback's photo.

After completing this, I realised it will also qualify for Scrap our Stash where we are asked to use the letters from the word EMBOSS.
E= embossing
M=mists
B=brads,bag (lolly),bingo card
O=oval stitched
S=scalloped border tag
S=stitching.

This is a nice page using those colors. It has been quite a long time since I did a color scheme based challenge - I don't think I'd do it so well as you though.
