There's a new challenge blog which I heard about on Jan's blog
which looked interesting so I thought I'd join in with.
You can find all the details at
This is a 'Colour Swatch Challenge' and
the first thing to do was choose one of my photos
- here's Lily in the garden taken last year.
The colour swatches on the right have been generated
by a website called 'Chip It'
and has turned my photo into a palette - how cool!
The challenge is to create a project using
at least 4 of the colours from the swatches.
I printed off the swatches and found some sari ribbon
which seemed to fit the bill.
(I only ended up using two of them though - along with some
other bits and pieces for the other colours).
A paper doll came to mind, I haven't made one for a while.
Using old packaging, I cut the body shape using
the above Sizzix die.
I rubber stamped one of the lovely faces from Clare Lloyd's
new set as show above - and glued it onto the die cut head.
I dressed the body with strips of the sari ribbon.
I gave her some hair using embroidery thread.
Did you notice her jewellery - a necklace and
matching bracelet of Rose Quartz.
So what colours did I use?
As close as I could get them anyway -
Nankeen - for the dress
Honorable Blue - also for the dress
Reverie Pink - the jewellery and legs
(although you can't see the colour in the photos)
Tricorn Black & Porpoise - for the hair.
What a fun challenge!
Thanks for looking :)
