Winnie and Walter Addies Garden and leaf stencil by Rachel vass
Winnie and Walter

Blue and orange colour combo

Hey everyone, sorry I’ve been MIA lately. I had a change of circumstances and started back at work a few months ago which has required a lot of my concentration (except when I’m not looking after my two-year-old of course)!

Every month I really look forward to seeing what the colour combo is on the Winnie and Walter blog. I always find that it pushes me outside of my comfort zone, and this month is no exception. Here is the colour combo, where we encouraged to use at least three colours.

Hope you like my first attempt. I used a Winnie and walter creative screening called leaf effect to stencil the background, the  scallop rectangle is also by W and W as it is a gorgeous daffodil flower which is from the Addies garden stamp set.  The heat embossed sentiment is by Altenew.
