Embrace Colour Challenges!

Hi guys,
I'm so sorry for lack of posting the last week and a half. Last week I returned to work at reduced hours and that along with going to a wedding in the hunter valley over the weekend (Which was gorgeous) has left me so physically exhausted. I do have quite a few things to share with you guys it's just a matter of having the energy to put it all on so bare with me.
First thing I do have you was from a week ago. The Inklings Demo group I'm apart of had there monthly challenge night. This one was hosted by the lovely and talented Carol. The first challenge of the night was a colour challenge. Here is the colour challenge....
Admittedly when I first saw the colours I was absolutly crapping myself. 2 of the colours in the challenge are my least favourite colours (Cameo Coral and Groovy Guava) but I felt that I should give the challenge a go to really push myself outside of my comfort zone. I am really happy I did as I am so happy with the result and may even use these colours again! (Yes this baby is really doing strange things to me!) Here's what I came up with...

Stamp Set: Embrace Life, Short & Sweet
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink, Groovy Guava, Watercolour Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral (Marker), Pretty In Pink (Marker), Timber Brown Stazon (Non SU)
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Mat Pack, Dimensionals
Thanks for looking!
Dani
