GLOBAL DESIGN PROJECT GDP025






The challenge over at Global Design Project this week was to use these colours.  Wow - this took me out of my comfort zone - as I don't often use greys or yellow - apart from with that cute little Chick from the Honeycomb Happiness set.  But I didn't want to use him again.

So I plumped for the Birthday Blooms and used the Daffodil Delight for the rose.  Yellow roses are my mother in law's favourite and she has a birthday soon.  Yellow Roses always remind me of Texas too where we were lucky enough to live for three years back in 2002!

I embossed the flower with the Smoky Slate and clear embossing powder and used the Daffodil Delight ink and an aqua water pen to colour it in.  A touch of Wink of Stella also gave it some sheen.

The sentiment was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.

Not quite sure if I would use these colours again with this type of card - I'll have to see if it grows on me.

Check out the other designs - there is fabulous inspiration on this blog.
