Can you believe it's already the last week of the Summer of Colour challenge hosted by Kristin over at Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star?
It really is my favourite challenge and I'm sad to see it end. This week (week 6) the colour combo voted for was sage and sepia.
I didn't vote for this. Not because I don't like those shades, because, actually, I really do, but because I was being lazy and I just happened to have a Big Skies, Little Planet illustration completed which just happened to be in shades of aqua and pale yellow which just happened to be one of the colour combo choices! Needless to say that's the one I voted on.
Now though, I'm quite glad that it didn't win as the sage and sepia really is a lovely combination and I think it works quite well for this wee scene (although the sage looks more like lime on my computer).
Here's the illustration I had already done in aqua and pale yellow seeing as there are no more weeks left for those colours to get picked:

Thank you so much to Kristin for hosting this challenge. I'll be linking up with Summer of Colour on her blog as well as on Flickr and Facebook. So many are taking part in this challenge that you're sure to come across them via one of those links!
Oh, and by coincidence, as well as saying farewell to the summer of colour, it seems we are also saying farewell to summer up here in the far north of Scotland. We had a wonderful week of sunshine last week but it seems that unfortunately normal grey skies service has been resumed!
