Some Yellow here and Some Yellow there

I see so much of the color yellow used lately and I so love it.

For this card I used the Colour Q combo for my card and the Freshly Made sketch.  As usual, I am in love with the colors they put together. Using a color challenge always makes me go out of my box on combinations.  The little ball jar is a digital stamp by The Wax Fruit Company and the flowers are part of a digital stamp by Hero Arts.  Part of the fun of using digital stamps is that I can pick the size I want. For this card I was able to put the two stamps together and then I printed the image out as one.

 All I needed was just a bit of coloring with my Copic markers and I used one of my new most favorite supplies, some Liquid Pearls by Ranger.
 Here is the Colour Q combo.
And, the Freshly Made sketch that I used, I just turned the sketch on it's side.
For this card, I played around with a technique I have wanted to use for awhile. I also wanted to make it fit the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab.  I cut a bunch of diamonds using my Spellbinders Nestabilities die.  Once they were cut, I cut each one in half.  The paper is by BasicGrey and it is 2 sided, so I alternated using both sides for my design. 


 Once I had my triangles in place, I gave my design the accent of black rhinestones.
Part of my inspiration is the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.  From this I picked up that great yellow and the triangle shapes in rows.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
