Shop 'til We Drop

Getting a little scrap time in during our "stay-cation" spring break week. Trying to catch up on some favorite challenge spots, get a little ahead on some DT work, as well as just working on my own stuff.  Today's LO is inspired by Sketch With Color and Club CK Issue Challenge #5, use a photo prop.  Here is the color scheme I was to work with:

And here is my LO.  Spending the day at CKC Portland with some friends was the ideal opportunity to use a photo prop...and to get my hands on some of the new releases I'd been drooling over.  

Lately, I've been pushing myself to play with color.  I tend to repeat my blue, red, yellow brown.  So color challenges are a great place for me to start.  Add a sketch in and what more do I really need?  I used both scraps and new stuff on this page, and no cardstock at all.  The background paper is the reverse side of a print I probably never would have used.  I decided that darkish color was a dark steel bluish/greyish color.  It's really hard to tell.  So the striped paper is more navy, but the stitching is more steel grey in color.  I did omit the oval shape PP and kept the squared off paper instead, but kept to the sketch for the most part. 

Supplies: PP-Crate Paper, Fancy Pants, Doodlebug, DCWV; stickers-Fancy Pants; dots-MME; alphas-October Afternoon, Fancy Pants; thread-DMC; Ink-ColorBox
