The Play Date Cafe - colour challenge PDCC108

The current colour challenge over on
is to create something using the colours

This gorgeous colour combination made me think of
exotic places and spices
.... so please meet 'Jameela' from India.

(sorry about the poor photograph, it's too bright)

Her sari is made from sari ribbon - what else!
Her hair is black embroidery thread.
The bracelets are copper coloured jewellery wire.

The background has in it coppery mica accents from Starburst Stains
which doesn't show up very well in the photographs.

Here you can see what's she wearing underneath the sari.
I had a look on Google and found an interesting site about
how to wear a sari, so loosely based this outfit on that.

This colour challenge runs for another week yet
(I wish I realised that earlier when I thought I was too late)
- there is a prize for a lucky participant
and you may even get an honourable mention.

If you want to see some more projects using these colours,
there is a linky dinky thingy here.

Thanks for looking at mine -
and a Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends xx
