Color Hues - Pink & Yellow

 Hello Friends,  I have a birthday card made for the Color Hues Challenge - Yellow & Pink.


I have been thinking of how I wanted to use these colors on a card and after reading Hannelie's Altenew post on Adding Color to Stamped Images, I thought this idea was perfect so this is the card I made.

I made a mask with an large oval die and also with Altenew Watercolor Stripes Cover Die for the stripes.  I adhered them both together and then over the white panel.  I used blending brushes and SU Pretty in Pink & Daffodil Delight ink for the stripes.  I then used Spellbinders BetterPress Plate and a flower from the Flower Stems BetterPress stamp & die set to stamp the large flower image over the striped section.  I die cut the image, mounted the panel on the card base and then mounted the stamped image with foam tape back in the cut out.  I also used SU Daffodil Delight Blend to color in the flower center.  The sentiment is from Spellbinders Fancy Sentiments Strips BetterPress Plate & Dies.  I did use a different die to die cut it and mounted it with foam tape over the flower stem.

 You can see the dimension better in this photo.

I really like the finished card and enjoyed trying this technique.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
