Colour combo competition...

Morning all...

Today we start our first competition /giveaway.

Over the next four weeks we are going to be showing you four different colour combinations with examples...when these are all up it is then your turn.

You have to chose one of the four colour combos ( or more if you are up for it) to create a page, card or project . Once done...email to me at wendy@bbbweb.com and i will put you all into a draw and then pick a winner. And the prize? a £20 voucher to spend on the online shop on whatever you fancy :) sound good? Okay then...let's get started!

The first colour combination is....

If you are not aware there is a website called Design seeds which is full of colour combination for every occasion...a beautiful website and really worth a look! This is where all of our colour combos are coming from this time!
 First up i chose my papers.....this paper from Basic grey was my starting point...Trantella 
have you seen this paperline? it is seriously beautiful!


 The flowers, the background colour and the leaves are a perfect match for the colour combination.
I then set out to find other papers that match this and the colour combination. I have all my papers in colour order now so it was really easy! This is what i came up with!


 They are the following:
Ruby Rocket Avalon paper called Mysterious
Dear Lizzy vellum ( yep vellum...i never thought anyone would ever again make me buy vellum...how wrong can you be!!!!) called Lovely Afternoon.
Echo Park Victoria Gardens called Windchime
Dear Lizzy Heart Song pattern paper.

They all matched together perfectly.

And here is my page...


and some close ups...

I have to admit that have never even thought about buying the packets of die cuts from october afternoon called Flower stacks. I have always seen them and thought...well i could punch that out for myself...but this time i treated myself to this one...

and i am a tiny bit obsessed with them...i am in love with the word strips...i used some of the die cuts on this page as you can see on the image below! and the circles with the text on...i love the little notches that it has...really jazzes it up.

I will admit that when i go back to the shop i will be buying the other packets that i saw sitting there!!!

and i love making up my own word strips at the moment...adding words from the journalling...

Thanks for popping today....come back next week for another colour combo x

beautiful layout Wendy. I always look at those embellishments and wonder what to do with them. You make it look so easy.

Wonderful to see your paper colour choices before you use them.
