The new challenge at As You Like It Challenge this week is monochrome or rainbow colours.  When I first started to think about the theme, I was leaning towards the monochrome. I have a tendency to  get a bit 'OCD' about matching colour themes with any embellishments, but when it came down to it, I realised that I usually opt for 2 complementary colours, like strawberries and cream or purple and green. So when I tried to stick to just a single colour, I couldn't create something I was happy with. Therefore, by the elimination of monochrome, I've ended up with a colourful creation; perhaps a little more colourful than my usual makes, but something I was certainly more comfortable with!

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs
  • Green: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint
  • Blues: Tumbled Glass, Broken China
  • Purples: Seedless Preserves, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord
  • Pinks: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick
