Tuesday Throwdown #207: Mellow Yellow

It's Tuesday ... again. Time for another Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. The theme: "Mellow Yellow". I guess that means yellow is the main colour; not necessarily the only colour.

For my project, I'm using Robyn's Sunflower 2 digi.


 The patterned papers are from Crate Paper 's"Toybox" collection. Keeping it simple
with just some yellow Doodlebug twine.

Close up of the sunflower. I coloured it with GI markers:
GI 01130, 01150, 01180, 01250, 02120, 02130, 03110, 03150
Then I carefully cut around part of the leaves, tendril and flower to detach
these from the paper, leaving the negative in the background.  

A few challenges for my flower:

Craft-Dee BowZ August: AG With Handmade Bow - in yellow twine
Crafting From The Heart #30: Always AG
Digi Makeover #152: AG With A Digi
Love To Create #127: AG
Pile It On #31: Real or Faux Stitching

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Mellow Yellow". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm PST / 11pm GMT by Monday, August 11th. And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

Thanks for stopping by. Must dash .... I have a full day ahead ... the kind that makes you wonder if you'll ever get everything done and still have time to breathe! And there'll be an exciting little announcement on my blog tomorrow. So make sure you swing by. Have a great day, y'all!

Beijinhos!

  10. Asha,
    Your link isn't working this week at TT. I couldn't get to your site via the card. Wonder what happened.

    So glad you commented so I could get to you easily. I love the dp with that image. I like that you make the image tres bold. I don't usually do that and I should

    Thanks for the inspiration!
