Fancy Marci - Colour Challenge at La-La Land

Good Morning and happy Monday everyone, if you're in the UK I hope you've dried off a bit from the awful weather yesterday (of course this is scheduled so it might be awful today as well lol).

Apart from the weather I have had a simply wonderful weekend.  I had the mojo flowing and got 3 projects made (a good side effect of the bed weather and keeping indoors) and when I got up on Saturday morning I had a message to tell me that I'd been chosen to Guest Design for Little Darlings Rubber stamps for their new release of  Saturated Canary stamps!!  2 never before seen stamps are now winging their way to little old me.  Just a couple of projects to make which is perfect cos I have such a busy time coming up over the next few months.

I'm at work as this goes live but then I have 4 days off work because it's my baby girl's birthday today (I say baby, she's 25 now, but she'll always be MY baby) and she's coming to spend a few days with her Mum : ) WoooHoo!!

Anyway onto the reason I'm here and as usual on a Monday I'm bringing you my inspiration post as GDT for La-La Land Crafts.  Today our theme is a colour challenge, and I've put the inspiration pic at the end of my post so you can play along.

La-La Land Craft Item's Used:

As soon as I saw the colours in the inspiration pic I knew exactly the papers I wanted to use, the new Coffee in the Arbour collection from Maja Design has some papers which are the perfect colours! As usual I've inked and hand stitched all my layers.

I thought Fancy Marci would look really good in these colours so I coloured her up with my Copics for easy colour matching.

Colours used:

Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E50, Y23, YR21, E33, E37
Clothing: RV10, RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99, G21, G82, G85

Apart from the dies which are all available at Dies to Die for (except the new ones which should be in stock soon),  I added some seam binding , flowers and flat back pearls from The Ribbon Girl and some lace from Live and Love Crafts.

This was the photo we had for colour inspiration

Do pop over to the blog to check out the rest of Team Monday's makes, I have to say I think this is a particularly good week for us, all of the girls creations look super stunning!  Also if you're on Facebook don't forget to join in the fun in our group here.

Why not have a try using these colours and see what happens?  We'd love to see the results!

That's all from me today, don't forget I've moved my posting day for Dies to Die for from Tuesday to Friday, so I'll see you again then.  Have fun! : ) x x
