Challenge 13 Pick a Colour Palette

Good morning we've got another fun challenge lined up for you but first a big thank you to everyone who entered our 'go grungy' challenge, we'll be announcing the winner and top 3 next week so make sure you pop back!

This time our challenge theme is

 'Pick a Colour Palette'

Some of the DT have got their inspiration from the Design Seeds website where you can find so many gorgeous colour palettes to inspire you but if you prefer you can pick your very own colour palette instead. As always our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous crafty goodies from Premium Craft Brands, you don't have to use our products to play along but of course we love it when you do! 

You have two whole weeks to enter so plenty of time!

Now lets see what the DT girls have chosen for their colour palettes this week

Claire C  I've altered a door hanger using Metallic PanPastels, Maimeri gesso, Light Modelling Paste and 'pop art' stencil from Dutch Doobadoo I've added some stamps from the fab new designs from Premium Craft Brands and coloured the images with my PanPastels

this is the colour palette I used for inspiration, its from Design Seeds. I used PanPastels in Turquoise, Turquoise Shade, Burnt Sienna Tint, Orange Tint and Raw Umber. You can find all the details on my blog

Terry  I worked on wooden flowers, they were white when I started my project. First I used Gesso, Light Modelling Paste and worked on them with the DD maskes and stencils. 
I added Purple, Lavender and Greenish colours to it. To finish my Flowers Mobile I played with some crackle and stamped sentiments on top. Want to see more picture then you just click my name and it will take you to my blog.

I have had no further reply from sales@polkadoodles since they told me they were passing my details to the Pan Pastel team. Can anybody help please?
