Unfortunately I finished my piece yesterday and the rain was coming down hard all day. I had hoped when I got a glimpse of this little beauty that the sun might make an appearance:
Anyway! I'm so glad I got to take part in this challenge. I really do love a color challenge! It is especially great when you are forced to put colors together you might not normally do so on your own.
As was the case with this challenge. I was able to pick my 'main color', orange, but then Erin selected a palette for me with orange as one of the colors. The palette came from Design Seeds and my palette was called "Winged Tones":
I fell in love with my palette immediately and knew I needed the perfect focal for my challenge piece and so I was delighted to call upon my Bead Soup Blog Party partner, Alison of BeadsByEarthTones! I showed her my palette and asked her to create a custom piece for me.
Here's what she came up with!
If you haven't been over to Alison's Etsy shop, you should really check it out. She makes beautiful polymer beads also - but I'm really in love with her Imprint Series!
So without further ado, here is what I did for the color challenge!!
I am excited to see a lot of familiar faces on the list of challenge participants and I can't wait to check out some new faces too!
