The challenge over at Global Design Project this week was to use these colours. Wow - this took me out of my comfort zone - as I don't often use greys or yellow - apart from with that cute little Chick from the Honeycomb Happiness set. But I didn't want to use him again.
So I plumped for the Birthday Blooms and used the Daffodil Delight for the rose. Yellow roses are my mother in law's favourite and she has a birthday soon. Yellow Roses always remind me of Texas too where we were lucky enough to live for three years back in 2002!
I embossed the flower with the Smoky Slate and clear embossing powder and used the Daffodil Delight ink and an aqua water pen to colour it in. A touch of Wink of Stella also gave it some sheen.
The sentiment was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.
Not quite sure if I would use these colours again with this type of card - I'll have to see if it grows on me.
