Another challenge combo!  Love it when I can do this, especially when I have a heck of alot on my plate!

This time, I'm combining the colour palette challenge at Scrapfriends with the technique over at Scrap Your Story - i.e. stitching.  I'm finding myself becoming more and more inclined to want to use stitching in my pieces.  I really do love the tactile effect.

Here is the colour palette from Scrapfriends:


Admittedly, not a colour scheme I'd lean towards at all; but I was more than pleased with my final result:

I was really thrown by this colour combo, truth be told, especially when had all the paper laid out in front of me, with no idea as to how I was going to put it together to make it work!!

I used stitching on the left edge and along the yellow polka dot paper, as seen, and then also on the doily o the left.

I used a pale yellow and a mustard colourd paint dabber on the doily to give it a shaded effect.  Below is a close-up of the stitching I used on it; and also the hand-drawn 'stitching' around the edges of the doily.

I have had this silver-grey tuille for YEARS and I loved the soft feminine effect it has created on this piece.

And that is it!  Thanks for looking! :-)


  1. Lisa-Marie, this is just stunning. Not colours I would lean towards either but this has just changed my mind. You really nail these colour challenges. I love this. Thanks for playing along at SYS too...

  2. Wow. I love those colors together (not my normal colors either), but you did an awesome job with them. Stitching is so much fun, I love that you used a variety of stitching - your drawn on stitching/faux is so precise! Thanks for joining us again this week at SYS.
