Colour Challenge at FSC

Hi - I'm running late with the new challenge post for Fashionable Stamping. I have a stinky cold and my brian is cotton wool so I completely forgot !! Oops Sorry - but I'm here now. So this fortnight's challenge has been set by the very talented Brenda who chose an unusual colour combination of -
My sample is a scrapbook layout - 
 My mum and I are working on a scrapbook together of old family photos, this top picture is my Grandma in 1940, and on the second page below are some more shots of her, but we don't know the dates.
 The backing papers are from DCWV. To add more detail I've stamped and embossed in two of the corners
Here I've stamped and embossed a film strip by Artistic Stamper and added the written details - the date and other details were on the back of the main photo. 
So how will you be inspired to use these colours - the rest of my team mates have come up with some glorious samples as always so do pay them a visit. Don't forget we do need to see stamping on your artwork. Looking forward to seeing what you create ! Thanks for stopping by...Esther xx
