TCR Palette #69: Boy I Think You're Amazing!

TCR challenges are always challenging! The standards are so HIGH and I often find myself not having the shades that are on the palette (still a newbie, my stash is still very small). When I saw #69 I decided to try it out, quite an unusual color combo I must say. I had to go and get myself some pool blue paints and new papers... taddaaa ... excuse to shop!

BOY... I think you're amazing!
All the embellishments are Basic Grey Hopscotch chip stickers and office tabs. Patterned paper is an old 7Gypsies Canal Venice. Other than that, we have TA Mist in Turquoise and Adirondack Acrylic paint dabber in Pool Blue, some brown felt, some netting, corrugated paper, a button and a BG brad.

I made this felt button flower; free-hand cutting hehe. It looks really unproportionate actually. The big button did a good job hiding it. Scattered the chip stickers on the corrugated sheet. I had to resist very hard not to use flowers here, I didn't want to girlie-fy the layout too much.

I split the office tab so I can use it twice. Foil chipboard alphas from AC.

Here's the other portion of the office tab.

I got so into the color scheme after I'm done I actually went on and made a card. I so happen to pick up an orange paper from Basic Grey's Life of the Party line (Again! I'm so into BG lately!)

Using up some scraps here, plus I was just dying to use this new Penny Black stamp I got from Cherry On Top.

Thanks for dropping in! Have a great week ahead :)
