Embracing the Storm – Two Happy Stampers Colour Challenge

I came across a blog called Two Happy Stampers this week, and was impressed by the beautiful cards they make.

For the month of March, they have posted a colour challenge – to use the following four colours in a work of art or craft:

I found it a little difficult to get the colours right, but I hope they are pretty close.  This is the painting I came up with – I’m calling it “Embracing the Storm”:

I think the colour challenge is a great way to promote creativity, and I’ll definitely be back to participate in the next one, and in the meantime to check out the beautiful paper crafts at Two Happy Stampers.

    it’s a beautiful composition, I like the sweet and mysterious atmosphere, it makes me think of one of those dawns in an early spring morning, when everybody’s still sleeping, you see a magic light and you can only wait till the sun starts to warm up the cold earth
    Great use of colour, hope to see more ;-)
