CCSR - Colour Blocking Challenge

The challenge this fortnight over at Stampin Chic Blog is colour blocking....

According to a few websites Colour Blocking is a new trend hitting the catwalks!
Pippa Jameson Interiors shows some great examples of bright colour blocking in fashion and homeware, Colour blocking has also been used in the craft sector and an article at ScrapJazz shows some examples of it used it being used in scrapbooking.
I wasn't too familiar with colour blocking and just went for blocks of patterned papers. Although cardstock is a staple of color blocking, you can use subtly patterned paper if you’re feeling creative. I have sanded the ripped edges to give distressing effect. I have made the butterfly from shrink plastic which I've coloured the back with peel off pens. Just LOVE these PM studded stickers. Click on images to enlarge.
