Mellow Yellow - PPA218




This dahlia is definitely bold enough to stand on its own but I thought a pop of color would really set it off!  Using a split panel technique I saw on Maile Belles' blog allowed me to insert a strip of Hello Honey designer paper behind the white cardstock which is popped up on dimensionals. The dahlia is stamped on the white which has been trimmed out very carefully with paper snips and paper trimmer. And "in real life" the rhinestones are a lovely shade of yellow thanks to my Blendabilities but my camera just couldn't pick that up correctly.

My daughter's camera however seems to have no trouble picking up beautiful shades of yellow as you can see from this picture of a sunset in the Outer Banks!







                           Pals Paper Arts has a wonderful color challenge for us this week.  Hope you join us!

I see a CASE coming on... Linda, this card is LOVELY! It is the second one this week containing the split panel which must be a trendy technique that I have missed! I adore the dahlia stamp... must ink it up again. Thanks for sharing, Pal!!

I had to carefully study this card after reading that you didn't fussy cut the whole flower out. At first glance, I thought you had popped up the flower. What a cool technique! I love that flower, and I love the little yellow pops of color.
