Secondary Colours at Make My Monday

Good morning

This is the second week of our month long colour wheel challenge at Make My Monday, and this week we are looking at Secondary Colours, and in particular Orange, Green and Purple.  I have always known that these colours do look good tighter - it is a case of being brave enough to do it, and making sure that the tones are right.  Funnily enough I have used these colours before in a post last year here, and had not remembered it, but it popped up in the 'you may like' images at the bottom of my post from yesterday.

Please pop across to the challenge there are some wonderful pieces of work from the design team.

My mojo has taken a wander at the moment, so I decided to use an image from Fred She Said - this time Cala Lillies.  I have stippled distress ink around the edge.  I have used Core-dinations card stock and ribbon from Stampin Up, and some purple pearls from the Hobby House, which I purchased on Saturday at the Art Stamps show in Newbury.  I met my friend Anne and we both attended a fab and fun two hour workshop run by Barbara Gray of Clarity Stamp fame.  I also managed to purchase quite a few Clarity stamps as well as a few other bits and pieces.

We have a fabulous monthly sponsor for one lucky participant at the end of the month.

Priyanka from My Heart Pieces is offering 3 digis of choice to the July monthly winner. The DT were very generously given 5 digis to uses for these challenges and you will see them throughout the month!

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs,


  1. You've done a fabulous job of using these three colours Val. As you say you need to be brave and I think I nearly always stick to 'safe' options, lol! I like the way you tied it all together by stipling the colour round the edge of the main image. Lovely work ......... especially as Mr Mojo has deserted you. Never mind, he'll be back!
