So, onto our 28th challenge

The sponsor of this challenge is :
My Mum's Craft Shop

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Colour Duo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I think it's fairly safe to say that my three favourite colours are pink, blue and purple, but as today's theme is to use your two favourite colours, I had to choose just two.  So I chose pink and aqua blue, as I think they go beautifully together, and probably are the best combination from the three.  I hope you agree!

My Favourite colour duo is definitely
Peacock feather Blue and Walnut Stain Brown.
Those are the distress ink colour names 
but any Blues and Browns are good to go for me.. 
Well, I love the way they complement each other and 
they play a huge role in the soft furnishings of my home too! 


Blue and Cream my favourite. 

I've loved blue since I was a child and these papers are so 'me'.

I love brown-green combinations. 
I think a little bit of brown really enhances the green colour.


It's pink and green for me.  
I think it's largely due to my love of  the outdoors. 
Mother Nature puts colour together like no other!!


I love all colours so it's very hard to pick just two, 
but I love this colour combo as they work well together; purple and cream.

I love this colour duo because of the sturdy darkbrown with the sweet pale blue. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Colour Duo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
