Challenge #2 at Craft Hoarders Anonymous…LET'S SEE THAT HOARD!

It's time for another challenge at 

Challenge #2: Let's See that Hoard!
This is a Color Challenge with a twist. Pick the thing or things that you seem to hoard the most, and using the color scheme shown below, create a project that showcases your hoarded item or items. Do you hoard buttons, beads, ribbon, papers, stickers? Show your hoard, but only the items that match the color scheme!
 (Please note, you do not have to use all the colors in the photo, nor match the colors exactly. Just use the photo and the colors to inspire you to dig through your hoard.)

The prize for this challenge is from Shari Czerwinski, a Close to My Heart Rep. 
The prize is valued at over $85 retail.

What do I hoard?

Everything lol,
But all joking aside I really really love my coloring mediums.
Inks, Mists, Paints and more,
if it can add color then I MUST have it.

Here is just a small sampling of my color hoard for this challenge.

Here is my layout I created.
Blues are probably my most favorite color to work with so this page came together easy peasy.

This is how I started to add the color to my base…
First several pieces of Pink Paislee paper from my hoard;
Misted with Frost Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels,
Silks Acrylic Glaze through a Stencil Girl stencil.
Blue Washii tape.
Stamping with a BoBunny stamp & Colorbox ink.
More stamping with a circle stamp that was painted with Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Here you can see some of the mist dripping, the stamped circles 
(Lindy's Stamp Gang Ocean Breeze Blue)
and some of the tape.

More stamping and stenciling,
the words were cut from a piece of Pink Paislee paper.

White Prima flowers were painted with Silver Bells 
Silks Acrylic Glaze.
Small pearls were added to the center and blue star brads were scattered about.
