Colour Create Challenge #91 DT Inspirational

Mina is the hostess for Colour Create Challenge #91 for the next couple of weeks, and chose the colours gray, yellow, black and white. Mina also chose as the optional part of the challenge to add flowers to the project. I love the colours of light yellow with gray. In the mid 80's I had a kitchen that needed a face lift and guess what colours I chose? Yup,you have it, a pale yellow and light gray! It ended up being one of my favorite kitchens. Here is the inspirational photo that Mina chose for our challenge.

And the prize for the month of March is provided by Wenche and the online KORTHOBBY store. SO if you enter both March challenges, you have two chances of winning!
 


"I have been scrapping for several years. I do a lot of shopping abroad and often my shopping includes much more that I can use myself. That's why I got the idea to open an online store. Please take a look at my store at http://www.korthobby.no/ Hugs,Wenche"


And this is my DT inspirational submission for the challenge.


The funny thing is that in preparing for this challenge I discovered that I didn`t have a whole lot of yellow paper! I had a couple of sheets of a brighter patterned yellow, but had to resort to my scraps for a nice pale yellow.

I used Cuttlebug`s Asterisks dies to create the flowers. In the center I used the smallest size cut in gray and used black Enamel Accents to create a stamen-like look and added white Enamel Accents right in the center. I also used the Enamel Accents to frame the embossed yellow paper and the die cuts framing the sentiment.

The leaves are also a Cuttlebug die. I edged them with a gray ink and used my stylus on an old mouse pad to create the veins and give them a bit of a curl.

In case you are wonder what embossing folder I used on the pale yellow background, I purchased this paper about two and a half years ago at a Dollar store in Calgary.

I debated whether or not to include this next photo or not, because I got too close in taking the photo and therefore the image came out fuzzy. I wanted you to see the card form the side to see how the flowers and leaves work on the card. So here it is anyway.

Thank you for stopping by, and I look forward to seeing your design for this challenge at Colour Create Challenge. Stop in at the blog to check out the wonderful DT inspirational projects. Happy crafting everyone!
