Several Shades of Yellow on Black

Color Hues #42 Black and Yellow

After going through my paper scraps I picked out several different shades of yellow and using a new Spellbinders die set called Be Leave Me, I proceeded to die cut the elements. I paper pieced the flowers to fit the challenge as well as adding the largest element to a black piece. I wanted some contrast between the flowers, leaves and background so I chose a cream yellow for the leaf outline and added it to a yellow green paint swatch. Using a glitter paper pad from I found a yellow green that works for the background and I dry embossed it using a brocade folder. I also cut a flourish from the same glitter pad and then added some gold gems for the center of the flowers. As I’m not sure yet of how I will use the card I’ve left off a sentiment and, in fact, may just add something inside rather than on the front.

Thanks for sharing some time with me today.

    1. Thanks, that sparkly layer was not easy to cut. I find glitter papers don’t cut well even on a paper cutter.


  1. Thanks Gerry. I embossed the sparkly piece just to see how it would look and decided it was quite nice when done.
