Colour Q # 74


I have to admit that I am not very good with color challenge, but I am just going to keep trying until I feel comfortable, so I am playing along with COLOUR Q Challenge again

Here's the color palette for week # 74


It was hard for me to use those colors, especially the color orange (tangerine tango, which I hardly ever use...


I hope that tiny orange bow helps...


love this diecut paper from my Pixie January kit, I used every single bit of it...



Hop over to COLOUR Q and play along with them!
