Make it Yellow

Hello there...
We have a new challenge over at Double D Challenge today


Team Diane are hosting and the challenge is
Make it Yellow


Yellow is not my go to colour... It's always a challenge to me for some reason ... Guess I'm more of a blues and greens gal but, yellow it is!


I had the idea for my card and started by stamping and colouring the flowers with Copics but I made a boo boo so ended up cutting out the stamped flowers and layering them ... A happy accident as it turned out...


The background was sponged with distress ink and everything else was done with Copics
Then I did a lots of raindrops using glossy accents


The team have created some lovely cards to inspire you up on the blog ... Go take a look and see what you can win if you link up with us ...

As it happens Just Us Girls have a Word Week challenge and the word is Raindrops


So I'd like to enter my card there and also at Inkspirational Challenges 
where they have this lovely photo this week
 


Thanks so much for stopping by - Have a lovely day!

Stunning ! Maybe yellow isn't your go to colour but this is amazing beautifully coloured and love the off the edge flowers ( thank goodness for the mistake ) the raindrops are terrific I love my ga but would be too scared to drip all over my finished card for fear of ruining it.

Well this is so stinkin' cute. I love how you have achieved the raindrops by pulling out the Glossy Accents so they look like actual drops. GENIUS!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at Just Us Girls.

Stella said...

Speaking of favorite colors I am with you. Blues and greens are always my go to colors. But you did a lovely job colouring these flowers. They made me think of daffodils. And that umbrella is so sweet! Your cat; I think it;s my favorite element:)
Sending big hugs!

WOW! I LOVE your popped flowers and the blue sky you snuck in! The raindrops are FAB and the kitty is delightful!

Lisette Baker said...

Oh Ros this is fabulous. Gorgeous yellow and such a cute kitten looking so cosy under his umbrella (and boy would he have needed that today!!). Those raindrops are fantastic.

Kathy Krug said...

Ros, I love this card. Newton is so darn cute under his umbrella and the flowers are gorgeous. The glossy accents is a nice touch. Think I will steal that idea. Nice shading around your focal image.

Dawn Lancaster said...

Ros, I love your card! I'd never have known you struggled with yellow because you've absolutely rocked it!
Hugs

This card is so cute Ros. I absolutely love the cat with its umbrella. The bright yellow flowers are the perfect finishing touch for this sweet Spring card.

Barbara said...

A very happy accident, I shall say - such a cute card! The glossy accents make truly wonderful raindrops and these warm hues of yellow and orange are so much in contrast with the rain theme (one would think) but work so well to get across the message.

Wen Sylvestre said...

Awwww, this is such a sweet and beautiful card dear Ros!

Jinny Newlin said...

Awww! This is precious, Ros! I love the yellow, and what a great combination of images to build your scene!

Charlene said...

This is pure cuteness!!!

Tracy said...

Poor kitty. He doesn't seem to be enjoying that rain any more than our dogs do and they're water dogs. lol I think the flowers look so pretty layered like that and the rain drops are perfect. :-)

Lisa said...

This is awesome! Love that cute little Newton and your card is gorgeous! Congrats on being a top pick over at the Inkspirational Challenge!!

Greta said...
