Color Combos Galore 186

This weeks Colour Challenge was to do some layering. I used a picture of my DD when she was two. As you can see by her picture her skin is very fair and I was trying to encourage her to wear a hat outside when she played. However after popping the hat on her I would turn my back for a moment only to find that she would remove it again. This particular day I just happened to take a snap of her expression when she removed it..the look says it all.

For this Palette I used papers from Pink Paislee, Websters & Making Memories. The gray stumped me a little, mine was printing with a slight olive tone and the name of the colour was Smokin Hot Gray so I used two grays to cover me. Jo Sonja Dove Gray paint and the Pink Paislee doilies that I cut from paper are a sort of Olive Grey and matched with my palette printout. I used a Tattered Angels stamp with the paint and stamped on the background cardstock, then layered all my cutouts from Prima Gabrielle & Basic Grey Gypsy. I spritzed some Foofala canvas flowers and layered these as well however these look a lot more turquoise in the picture. I used teal ink for the butterfly and then blinged it up with glitter. Transparencies is from Hambly the other one is a digital download that I used.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
