Life Paper Scrapbook - November Colour Challenge

 Hello ☺  Happy Monday to you all.  Just wanted to quickly share my inspiration for the colour challenge at Life Paper Scrapbook.  This will be my last share for this lovely challenge blog - I've decided to step down from this one to allow a little more time for other things, including my family.  I'm hoping I can still play along from the 'other side' from time to time - I do love their challenges ☺
Anyway, here is the lovely colour palette:
 
 .... and here is my take on the challenge .......
  I've let some of the colours dominate and added pops of the other colours.  I love how it's turned out. I've used papers by American Crafts, Teresa Collins and Pink Paislee.  Here are some close-up's:
 Here is a cluster of embellishments - banner die-cuts, chipboard feather, flair badge,  crochet heart, some paper hearts and twine.
I've done a bit of texture paste in the background with a stencil.  Once dry, I've coloured over with water colour crayon, then added water to create the water colour look.  I've then gone over with my script stamp.
I have also added in my typewriter journal work.

I hope you like it and feel inspired to create using these colours.  Please check the blog for details and also more inspiration ☺

I love how you have approached the colour challenge Chantelle. Until I saw your layout, I wasn't sure about the colours but you have made them shine xx

Really fun....especially love that texture work...I have that stencil, it's REALLY useful! Shame you're stepping down, but I reckon you keep pretty busy anyways - will miss your 'takes' on the challenges, though:):)
