Black and Yellow - Very Dramatic


This has been the wettest summer in years! First it’s so hot and humid you can hardly breathe followed by a thunderstorm! More rain predicted for the next few days but we are hoping to get a BBQ at the park in between the storms. We shall see.

Today’s card is one I made the other night and a friend of mine saw and it and just had to have it. She loved it because it was so dramatic so I hope you like it too.


The image is another free download from the Internet and it was coloured with coloured pencils; blended with gamsol with Wink of Stella added to the petals and Stickles to the centre of them.

The ovals were die cut with Spellbinders Oval dies – one of the first set of dies I bought many years ago – and the banner was hand cut. The paper is from my stash as is the bow which I tied myself. The black trim around the yellow plaid paper was created with a black pen dragged down the edge with an old greeting card used as a shield and guide. I just leave about a 1/8” edge and pull the pen down the paper. This leaves a nice black edge that looks like the yellow was mounted on black.

That’s all for a sunny; then cloudy; then hot; and then rainy Friday, June 23, 2017. Have a wonderful weekend everyone and remember you never know what troubles others are coping with so be kind, always.

Cheers

Violet
