Graphicus Challenge - March - ' Yellow & Sing '

Just a couple of cards to go with the Graphicus blog challenge:

All the items used except for card stock are from Graphicus:

The first is using the ' Good Deeds ' themeplate. The background is Glimmer misted in Honey Dew and Lemon Zest from the ' Spring Fever ' set and over stamped with one of the Good Deeds stamps and a flourish stamp. The ' Tag ' is flourish embossed and glimmer misted and rubbed to deepen the effect and a couple of organza ribbons. On the front of the tag is two 2" stamped , coloured and etched ' Stampboard ' pieces. On the right the matching verse and stamp from the Good Deeds set.




The card is an A5 - ¾ fold card which just adds a little more interest than a standard gatefold. Again the back ground is coloured and stamped as above.



This next one is just another pretty card which I made as I had some card left over with the over-sprayed glimmer mist so thought why not make a quickie card .....

This one uses the Fuchsia Themeplate for the main panel and also the small fern style leaves from the Hyacinth Themeplate and the Lily Themeplate . The stamping was inked with Memento and Versafine inks, the buttercup flowerheads were highlighted with 0200 Sun Yellow Inktense Pencil. Inktense Pencils .

I do have another in the making that will tie in more with the " Sing " part of the theme ... all will be revealed shortly !

Beautiful cards Deby. I think yellow, although a wonderful springlike colour is not easy to pull off without it appearing harsh. You've succeeded!

These are beautiful cards, although yellow is not one of my fav. colours I do like both of them. The colours are very subtle and I especially like the stampbord pieces.

What beautiful cards. I love glimmer mists and the yellow, although unusual,works so well. You are a very talented lady.

These are really beautiful. I have to admit I am struggling with this and may yet end up with nothing this month

Oh Deby, these are just beautiful, such lovely soft yellows. I love yellow but for some reason I am really struggling to get inspired - instead my head is full of Bluebells right now!

Well I have managed to do something this month but nowhere near as nice as yours. What a struggle it has been for me.
