One Layer Wednesday

To use the colour palette of Yellow, Orange and Aqua as required for One Layer Wednesday this week was a real challenge for me. None of these colours is a particular favourite with me and to put them all together took a little thought to say the least.
This little masked and sponged square with the stamped bits and pieces is what I finally decided upon.
The butterfly and the grasses are from Indigo Blu and the splodges from SU French Foliage (I love that set). The sentiment is a little clear stamp from Studio G.
Anything Goes - Here Comes Summer
I finally finished my Retirement cards and delivered then this morning, here are another couple... they are huge... A4 size (8.25 x 11.75 inches approx) and quite a challenge to fill!


I hope there will be enough room for all the signatures!

  5. I know what you mean about those colours but you've done a fab job with them. Great retirement cards too, so hard to 'fill' an a4 card.

  6. Fab cards Chrissie, they are tricky colours to put together and then add in the one layer aspect too!!!
    Love the heap of apples on the teachers desk:)

  7. Love your OLW card, Chrissie...beautiful job on the colors! What size is A4? About 5 x 7 inches? I used to do that size all the time, now I mostly stick with the 4.25 x 5.5 inch (A2?)

    Anyway....lovely cards, all!

  8. I think you did a great job on this card. I like the colors but never use them. That is what is good about these challenges. They make us stretch ourselves. I loved the card.

  10. Well Chrissie, it may have been a challenge to you but you nailed it. The butterfly and grass combination is gorgeous and you have inspired me to try those colours together too. I would probably not reach for them otherwise.

  13. Your cards are gorgeous Chrissie but it's the OLW one that's taken my breath away. I love the colours sponged together in this way and you've created a beautiful scene. (My French Foliage arrives today - YAY!!) Vx
