Challenging Colours

It's week 5 of the Summer of Colour 4 challenge hosted over on Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star.  With only one more week to go I and some of the other artists are already getting withdrawal symptoms.  

This weeks colour challenge was Royal Blue, Red and a splish, splash or dash of light blue.  Now lovely as the colours are on their own they were a definite challenge to me.  This really isn't a colour scheme I would ever choose to use.  But as this was a challenge I went a head and did some research and then played with the colour palette and this is what I came up with. 

I tried to keep the design element simple by using my all time favourite - hearts.  I used neo-colourII as the main colour medium.  Then I stamped the face and swirly leaf design in the light blue.  I still think it needs some other elements adding to it but for now I'm happy with what I've made and it fits in with this weeks challenge.

When I opened this page I said (out loud, and it's just me and the bird here today) - Oh wow that's pretty!

Gorgeous use of this week's colours!

I think this is awesome! For this palette, I really wish I had gone with imaginative instead of aiming for something 'real'. That'll teach me for diving headlong - again - (thinking of 'the boat' of week one) lol :D

Thank you for your lovely encouragement on my blog. I know I should be more positive about what I create.
Both of your comments published, lol, there must have been a hiccup with blogger, so thank you for making the second attempt ((hugs)) :o)
