The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC107


This week's challenge over at
is to create something using the colours
black & white with a SPLASH OF ORANGE.


For my doll this week (who's called Clementine!)
I gave her a black dress with white belt
made from sari ribbons needlefelted onto a piece of white felt.


Her hair is from an old wool scarf and is swept up with
a piece of orange ribbon.
She's wearing a necklace and bracelet of white pearls.

For the background, I used mountboard covered with old text
painted white and added a splash of orange paint here and there.


Thanks for looking and if you'd like to see more of this
colour combination there's a linky thing here.

Brilliant as usual. I think you missed your vocation.... you should have been a dress designer or fashion artist!

I was wondering how you were going to tackle this colour scheme. Beautifully! My favourite part is the way you have styled her hair with the orange scarf.
