Color Hues Challenge #74 - Yellow and Kraft - Artsy Leaves Grateful for You (Tim Holtz)


Welcome to Color Hues Challenge #74, where Hannelie has paired Yellow and Kraft as our inspiration for the next two weeks. Talk about a pretty combination.

Playing with my Tim Holtz Artsy Leaves once again; totally smitten with them! The essence of my design was inspired by this card created by Barbara. Obviously, my colour choices differ from hers, as do my wood grain embossing folder background and sentiment. I added Fallen Acorn mica spray (painted it on, as my spraying abilities aren't up to par!) to my leaves' veins. Sparkly! Speaking of leaves: they've sporting an assortment of yellow distress inks - Mustard Seed, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey. 

Looking forward to seeing how Yellow and Kraft inspire you.

The challenge will be open until October 28th @ 9 AM EST!

The winners will be posted an hour before our next challenge goes live.
The overall winner will have the opportunity to be a
future Guest Designer!

Thank you for dropping by!

Those leaves are really fabulous and I love that you brought them out once again to play. The texture background is also perfect as is the sentiment! Great card, Carol!

I can see why you're smitten with those leaves! This is a wonderful card, Carol!

Those leaves look fab against the textured kraft background Carol. With all the unseasonal weather over here, the leaves are still green for the most part. I noticed this morning that my potted acer has just started to colour up but no drop as yet. :)

Your leaves are awesome!!! Love the embossed background as well. I'm in North Carolina right now so I have plenty of beautiful fall leaves to admire right now.
