This week's Art With Heart team Colour Creation Showcase is one of my favourite colours!
We are focusing on Daffodil Delight, which is simply just a pure bright yellow. It is perfect for colour combinations incorporating other primary colours because on the colour wheel it is the perfect yellow.
Daffodil Delight sings of sunshine to me, and since we have just slid sideways into spring and have been having some lovely sunshine (despite the pretty crook wind), I really wanted to make some sunshiney happy cards.
I selected the Under My Umbrella stamp set and Umbrella Builder Punch, and had some very relaxing time colouring the images with some of our lovely bright Stampin' Blends - the alcohol markers blend so beautifully to give your coloured images a 3D look.
For this first card I stamped the Buffalo Check background stamp with Daffodil Delight ink for one of the layers mounted on Daffodil Delight card stock. The white layer is cut with the largest scallop rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set and randomly stamped with the rain drops stamp in Balmy Blue ink.
The second card has squares cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies, and even though you can't see it in this photo, the white square is also embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. I meant to add some of the yellow adhesive sequins from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit but forgot at the last minute.
The raindrops are stamped directly onto the base card with Daffodil Delight ink.
All of the layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and I have used a couple of Mini Glue Dots just to secure some of the flower bunches a bit more.
Hello Sunshine is inked with Poppy Parade ink. Don't you just love this cheerful, happy, fresh colour combination? It's really improved my mood today!
