Yellow challenge

Hello there,

Last week a friend of mine and I challenged eachother to create a  project using only the colour yellow. Gold was also allowed. The sentiment could be stamped in another colour. This is what I came up with. I rediscovered alcohol inks last week and just had to have a go with this one. The background is made by using various shades of yellow and gold alcohol inks and dabbing them on glossy card stock. The flower I made with corrugated card board circles I cut in various sizes and glued together to create a bit of a dome. With a punch I punched tiny flowers out of yellow card stock. With my paper blossom tools I shaped the petals and glued them to the dome and made hearts with liguid pearls. It was not quite the look I hoped, but I am awaiting my proper hydrangea punch to arrive. I made a bow out of gold ribbon and glued it to the card. Then stamped the sentiment and glued the flower in place. And chomped the corners with a ceopadile corner chomper. I mounted it all to a card black that is yellowish faux leather. I hope you like it AnnaMarie ;-)

Until next time,

Take care and keep your craft on!
