Blue and ochre

Over at the Paperartsy blog, they have a colour challenge going on - I guess it's no surprise now which 2 colours they have chosen.....yes, blue and ochre!

I thought that it would be fun to use my new Donna Downey stencil to create the flowers.The brick work was initially embossed using a Jofy 38 stamp set, then I painted over them with a brown and inbetween with an ochre neo-color crayon.
Joy of course because flowers are joyful!
