Try a Simple and Yet Sophisticated Color Combo

Hello friends! 

If you are here for the Quiet Reflections Blog Hop, please scroll down or click here.

I am popping in with a quick post about trying a tried and true color combo. With this month's Build-a Flower, I made another version with Parrot Tulips Set. Here is my first take with the stamp set.

Altenew-BAF Parrot Tulips-Sphere Stencil-Feeling Dotty Stencil-Embossing Paste-001 

Are you ready.... wait for it...wait for it...

My secret? It's yellow and many 50 Shades of Grey!

There is not much to it with stamp-layering with this stamp set. By following the guide, you will be able to stamp these stunning tulips. I did take one of the detailed stamp to create an artsy background. The yellow color really compliments the grey!

Of course,  let's not forget the yellow. I did use 4 shades of yellow for the background and that gives the card some extra interest and dimensions.

I loved the first one but this second one is
even more beautiful! I think it's a question
of colour! Grey/silver and yellow is always
a good combination!

I bet you made this card for me...right? It's fabulous...love this myriad shades of both the grey and the yellow. It adds so much texture and interest. You did really good, girl.

Really love the grey and yellow combination! The background with the layer from the tulip set is so elegant. Really gives the card a sophisticated look!
