Hello readers! Bonjour!! 
Today i have another post to share with u all. 
 we are playing for a palette this fortnight over @ Beyond Grey Challenges   
So here it is - 
we want to see how daring you all can get with this contrasting palette! 
 Use the above colors in a card / crafty project or a scrapbook page !

Our challenge wouldn't be the same without our amazing sponsors :
Di's Digi Downloads..

Lets see what Di - shop owner & illustrator has to say about her journey- 
"I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
That does sound like a story in itself ! thanks di ! we love ur work keep up the good work !

Now time for my creation for the challenge 
Here is what i came up with !
 A close up of the dry embossing done (with Sizzix Embossing folder- Dress Form Set
on my Echo park design paper 
I used some Dry Colors (other wise called Chalk colors )
on my sanded and embossed motif
Thats a technique i use to make the motif visible through the patterned paper. 
 I think it looks absolutely amazing ! 
I often use an eraser to erase any excess color that might have been spread around.
 The button is a chipboard button hand sewed and colored. 
 Some more embossing ! 
I think with Sizzix I have found the embosser in me ! (Dreamy eyed !)
 The flowers are absolutely handmade.
Except the mulberry roses ! :) 
Hope u enjoyed this post and will play with us :)
