Stampin Chic Colour Challenge 3

Morning Folks....it's Friday....the end of another week and time for another challenge at Stampin Chic.
It was the turn of Sheila and myself this week to come up with the colour challenge and we have chosen....wait for it........

TURQUOISE and YELLOW
Yellow isn't normally a colour I would use out of choice but hey that's what challenges are all about...a little kick start to your imagination.
Papermania Scalloped Card
Coredinations Cardstock
scored with my Score Board and then sanded
Paper: CCSR "The Big One"
Image: Flower from CCSR Doodles Stamp Set
Sentiment: CCSR Sentiment Stamp Set
Whispers Ink Pad
Stamped the flowers onto patterned paper and Coredinations Yellow....a little bit of inking, sanding and faux stitching......and 3D foam pads to give lots of dimension.......I am still not convinced that yellow is my colour but it's a bright happy colour and that's more than can be said for the weather today......rather dull and overcast but warm......well off to do a bit more painting in the kitchen....nearly finished now....and catch up with you all tomorrow on Penny Black Saturday...card not quite finished...so better get my skates on.

  10. Hi Kath, I hope you don't mind I have put a copy of your beautiful card on my blog with a link back to yours. It inspired me so much to use the colours yellow and turquoise and your card really stuck in my mind, I just had to have a go myself. If you do mind please tell me and I will take away the picture.
    Love Alicia
