I saw this great challenge at ColourQ this week.
They’re not colours I would generally put together but I loved the look of the inspiration photo so much I just had to give it a try.
Friday was daffodil day in Australia and I made some little daffodils from punches, coated them with crystal effects and made them into brooches for my daughters to wear to school. They were having a yellow day to raise money and awareness about cancer.
I made an extra one too so that I could put it on a card and use it for this colour challenge.
The blue is a new in colour called island indigo and it looks so beautiful with the yellow. Actually, I didn’t have crushed curry unfortunately and used daffodil delight instead. Amazingly it’s the perfect colour to make daffodils with, ha ha :)
After using the framed tulips embossing folder on the indigo I used my white craft ink to go over the top of the embossing and a little on the inside panel which gave it a kind of distressed (shabby chic) look.
I stamped the foliage in daffodil and then also embossed some with white embossing powder.
Stamps : Just believe, for everything
Card : confetti white, white, daffodil, island indigo, pumpkin pie
Ink : white, stazon, daffodil, versamark, pumpkin
Other : old olive ribbon, white brad, big shot, tulip folder, blender pen, crystal effects, 5 petal flower punch, 3 flower punch, white embossing powder
I think these colours work great for a bright and happy card. I am so glad I entered this challenge, I will definitely use these colours again.
