Colour My World....

Hello Everyone!! Today I have made a card that is a little different for me, I challenged myself to use colours outside my comfort zone - choosing reds, mustard and yellow. Not at all my normal colours!!!

I started with a base of More Mustard and layered with white and some red bazzill. Across the bottom I added some Haiku DSP. The sentiment is from SU's Elegant Cheer set, stamped in Ruby Red and cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio 2 Set and attached with some wide red grosgrain ribbon. The image is from ODBD's Happy Birthday stamp set and stamped in Jet Black Stazon on white. I just love this image!! I then coloured it with markers and a blender pen and cut it out using Large Circle Nestabilities, matting with More Mustard Large Scallop Circle Nestabiltities and popping up on foam tape. I finished off by adding some Kaisercraft Latte pearls to the top corners of the card and each corner of the sentiment panel.

Stamps - Happy Birthday (ODBD), Elegant Cheer (SU)
Paper - More Mustard, White, Red Bazzill, Haiku DSP
Ink - Jet Black Stazon, Ruby Red
Accessories - Markers, Blender Pen, Large Circle and Large Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Ribbon Tag Trio 2 Spellbinders, Red Grosgrain ribbon, Kaisercraft Latte Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)

These may not be your "normal" colors, but perhaps you should add them to your normal colors; your card rocks! I love this combo; it makes me smile (perhaps it is also because I love Kathy cards.)
