Yellow and Green
Yellow and green is this week's theme for the Card Crafter's Circle challenge. We (and especially I) want to see what you do with this color combination (as you can tell, I need enlightening)! We are happy to have Milk Coffee Stamps joining us again with their sponsorship for you! Our random prize winner will receive their choice of FIVE Milk Coffee images! I know that will be a fun prize to choose!
Now, I really, really like this little image (Milk Coffee's Fairy Princess). I think she is adorable and perfect for any little girl card. Look at her sweet little face -- a bit of a Mona Lisa smile. I colored her up with Copic markers. The cardstock I used is from my stash, and the patterned paper is from Kraft. I started with a green base which is layered with the yellow and then the DP. At this point, I felt my poor eyes and brain needed a bit of a "rest," so I added a white doily which is made from a Cheery Lynn die (FRM135, Swedish Spring Oval Frame). I then layered my image onto a piece of the yellow, punching one side with a Fiskar's scallop punch.
I added small pearls around my doily as the flower centers, and I used pearls in each corner cut from a strand of scalloped pearls (all by Recollections). My yellow ribbon and bow (Offray) is topped off with a yellow open tea rose (Recollection) which I adhered with dimension foam dots. My sentiment is computer generated using a font called Marnie and is layered with the green card.
Despite my lack of fondness for this color combination, the card actually turned out very pretty. IRL, the colors aren't quite as bright looking as they are in the photo I'm having to use. The yellows and greens are "softer" and look quite nice together. My teamies over at Card Crafter's Circle have all come up with their own combinations. Take a look! Then get busy creating your own spring card with our color combo and enter it in this week's challenge.We want to see you there!
