Yellow Roses

I was tidying my craft room a few days ago and came across a fabulous pad of patterned paper, primarily in shades of dark blue, but with a few touches of yellow here and there. Out came the yellow markers (which meant all my tidying was immediately undone!) and a printed version of the Wild Rose digital stamp.

I always find it tricky to get enough contrast when using yellow.  It's already a light colour and although it becomes richer, the variations with shadow and highlight aren't as wide as I would like. To compensate, I add some brown tones, which help to deepen and darken the shadow areas.


And here's the finished card I created with my coloured image and some of the fabulous patterned paper from the pad. Happily, there is still lots left so I'll be able to create more cards and projects with the same colour scheme. The only downside is that it's unlikely my craft room will ever be completely tidy!

Beside red roses, yellow roses are my favorite. Thanks for posting.
If you used copic colors, would you mind sharing the numbers?

Hi Conny. I did use copic markers and the colours for the flowers were Y13, Y15, Y17 and Y19. Then I darkened the centres and shadow areas with E13 and a touch of E15. I also used the 0 blender pen to bring everything together.
Cheers,
Beccy
