CAS Colours and Sketches 168

The challenge colours this week at CAS Colours and Sketches are springlike and floral ... which is a little depressing when it's a cold and bleak autumn day outside my window! So getting into a sub-tropical colour scheme was actually a lot of fun this morning.

As I don't have any Tangerine Tango, I used its near cousin, Tangelo Twist instead. I started by sponging a small panel of white with Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and a touch of Melon Mambo. I stamped over it with two different stamps from Petite Petals, one using Melon Mambo and one using Tangelo Twist. This whole panel is sitting underneath a plain white panel with a diagonally cut bottom, edged with Melon Mambo. 

The 'celebrate' is stacked with the underlayers being cut from Tangelo Twist and they are just peeping out a millimetre or so under the Melon Mambo to give  a hint of colour.

It's almost like being in Hawaii or Rarotonga! Or maybe that's just wishful thinking.....
