TLT - GD Caz's Challenge - Colour Wheel

My oh's TLT already! These weeks are flying in...can't believe we're on our 5th challenge :-D

Today is our Guest Designer Caz's challenge but it's also Caz's last week with us. We've really enjoyed having Caz with us and she has put up with us amazingly well lol. Her work has been flabulous and we are delighted she agreed to be our November GD. Thank you Caz and we wish you all the best with your crafting  :-D

Ok, on to the challenge..the Colour Wheel. The idea is to pick your favourite colour/the one you go to the most and then look at the colour opposite...that's the colour you have to work with. If it's your second favourite colour you're lucky...if it's your worst too bad lol. Now I can tell you there were a lot of moans and groans from the team ... I'm not sure many of us got a colour we included.

My favourite colour is purple so I had to work with yellow...blech!!! I could feel panic rise but I had a look through my pp and found a small piece of Imaginesce that I loved...and yes it was predominately yellow!!! This is what I came up with....

I enjoyed making the calendar and notepad tin so much for the crop I wanted to use another tin. I hummed and hawed over what I wanted to put in the minute it was chocolates (the flattest I could find lol) the next it was jewellery. I finally decided on a set of note cards.

I managed to make a set of 4 notecards which fit comfortably but I'm sure I could get away with 6

I wanted to use an image that hasn't seen ink in a while and finally decided on Day Off Ruby. You can just about see the pale yellow glitter on her wings.

I coloured her robe but wasn't too happy with it then remembered I had some yellow flock. It's hard to see but it's a flabulous texture :0D

 I'm going to get more stick from Tams and probably reported for GBH for all the bruises she gets from falling over after seeing my cards and projects covered in flowers as I'm not a great lover of them BUT I can make an exception for these made with my Die-namics die from MFT. I LOVE them :-D

Ta dah! This is what the inside looks like...

I 'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Not easy to make a yellow card (or altered tin in your case)! You managed well!

Pami said...

Thanks Kerry!! Love the tin, I think I may try and do one of these. I know this is may be a stupid question but are the notecards stuck together like a pad? or just individual sheets? It looks fabulous, I do like that image! Pami x

Kerry said...

They're individual cards Pami but don't open up...just flat :-D xx

Whimsey said...

Dang - do you get to be the teacher's pet???

AMAZING...and with YELLOW? You go girl; absolutely flabulous!! Love 'em...and you know where to find my address - LOL!

Anita said...

Well, I agree with Michele...I think you're trying to be the teacher's pet this week lol! For someone who doesn't like yellow, you sure did an amazing job. I love the image with her glittered wings and flocked robe. The tin with flowers is so pretty and I love the little notecards. What a great gift idea Kerry!
