I am on a roll this week. Been in my craft room 3 days plus. The colors at Color Hues are brown and yellow. If you know me you know that yellow is my favorite color. So I had to play along.
This MFT bouquet has been sitting in my new stuff bin far to long, I recently got the die on sale. So it was time for it to come out and play. I had to re-aquaint myself with my Copic markers. It was a bit difficult to get into the grove when one of my darker yellows turned up dry with a loose cap too...so the refill did me no good I have to order another... and then I have somehow mislaid my copic blend swatch cards. I have no idea how, because its a big unwieldy thing. Onward!
The stems, leaves and flower centers are all different brown shades, the flowers of course are yellow shades. I did some inking on the card base. I wont call it blending as its a bit splotchy which I quite like...kind of a foggy shadow. The sentiment from the flower set is heat embossed on vellum, with a second layer of vellum underneath to make the sentiment show up and still leave the blooms showing through too.
Thanks so much for visiting.
Gorgeous blossoms and I love your foggy shadow, Cat - beautiful card!!
I am enjoying all the yellow and brown cards and this one is no exception. I know how frustrating it is when you lose something and have no idea how, because it happens to me on a regular basis, but rest assured it will turn up, or you will suddenly remember what you did with it! Shame about the marker though. I really like that background too xx
Stunning card - great combination of yellow and brown.
Very pretty, Cat - and a clever way to put that vellum to use!
A challenge theme designed for you! Beautiful coloring of those pretty flowers, Cat!

Gorgeous card, Cat! Love your coloring and the foggy background was a great idea and interpretation. Good luck finding your swatches. Thanks for joining us at Color Hues.

Very pretty yellow indeed, Cat! Your coloring and inking looks great and another card success!
