Mugs Amongst Yellow




I played with my blues, greens, and yellows today~

I was bouncing off colors and arrangements until I settled on the above card.

Here were my starting points:

No two yellows are alike, let me tell you.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect yellow shade of ink and I've since acquired enough to stop looking. 

Well, maybe...no promises :)

I decided on Catherine Pooler and Simon Says Stamp yellows and matched the two with blue (leaving the largest flower open-outlined).

The cups were colored with Copics Cool Shadow and Lime Green (G21 for you fancy Copic peeps :)).

Thanks for looking~

  1. Hi Marlena! Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog. Sounds like we have a lot in common....I've been on that same search for yellow inks. Don't know why that particular shade is so tough. Noticed your card using Scripture Series 3 from ODBD. I was so thrilled to have a scripture chosen for that set as well, Ps. 29:11. What a blessing to have a promise from God and to have it made into a stamp!
    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Christine
