Blue and Yellow


This is for the CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge. This week the challenge is to use the colors blue, yellow and a neutral. Sounds easy enough - however, it took me all day long to get this one like I wanted it! Some days are like that though.

The flowers were stamped (Vintage Vogue-SU), cut out, and then (a few) popped up in Ballet Blue, Bashful Blue and Summer Sun. The sentiment was stamped in Ballet Blue using Warm Words - also from SU. Of course I had no ribbon to match this, so I used some white satin type ribbon and colored it with my SU markers. Thank you Patty and Jaydee for this fantastic tip! The layout I used was from Clean and Simple Stamping from several weeks ago.

Thanks for stopping by...................

When I think of blue and yellow together I think of the lighter shades. What a fun and vivid combo you chose. I like how your row of flowers meanders across the card.

I have attempted to color ribbon when I didn't have the right shade. You did a good job, but here's a caveat - the markers are water based which means that if the newly colored ribbon gets damp or wet (like delivered when it's raining) the ink will bleed out of it and ruin the card. Ask me how I know this!
