The Color Room Palette #7

Here's another new challenge I just found, at the Color Room.  I love the inspiration apron, and this was a challenge to work the orange into the paler pastels.


I really like the checks/dots at the waist and hem, so I used my houndstooth stamp and spiced marmalade on cream to simulate that effect.  And I liked the big flowers.  Here is what I came up with.    
All the other papers I used were printed ones.

Supplies: Stampendous Ruffled Bloom, Hero Arts K5175 Houndstooth, CL173 Simple Messages, CG148 Blossoms (leaves), Martha Stewart doily punch, Hero Arts spring buttons, pink embroidery floss

  12. hi lin ~ so pretty. love this flower!!
    for the color room, you click on "sign up" and go through the steps to upload your photos & create your own gallery, much like flickr. i can't remember exactly what i did, and now of course i am a member so i'm not seeing the same beginner's steps, but it must be fairly self-explanatory, if i managed to do it!! ;)
    i'm not sure if i've helped you, but good luck!!
