Craft-Room colour Challenge

Over at the Craft-Room Challenge site there are changes afoot! Sadly Julia has had to make the tough decision to close the Craft-Room Shop. She is running a 40% off closing down sale and everything must go so grab yourselves a bargain.  On the up side, the team are staying together and are quite excited about the plans we have for the Challenge site and are looking forward to the coming months !

Now time for this weeks challenge -  I was a bit stumped by this colour combination set by our lovely Zoe. She has asked us to use Chocolate, Orange and Cream and while I'm quite happy with the edible versions (especially together !!) these are not colours I go to by choice. Still I managed to create this tag, using mainly distress inks and walnut stain crackle paint.
I think it's a bit more golden yellow than orange, and the walnut stain paint looks greenish but I tried ! I added lots of texture - starting with a layer of distress ink over clear embossed stamped fern  leaves. I then used moulding gel through a mask in one corner, followed by more ink, paint, a chipboard swirl, Tim Holtz ticket  and some punched flowers. The larger ones are crumpled Glassine paper. 
So join our colourfull challenge this week and maybe help me to be more inspired by this combination by sharing what you create. As well as our challenge I'm sharing this at The Stamp Man where the theme is 'Texture'.  Esther xx
