1/29 Yellow and Gray

I am always up for a challenge . . . but the challenge at SCS today almost did me in!! We were to use YoYo Yellow with Going Gray and Basic Gray. I spent half the morning trying to figure out how to do that! My first question was which stamp set??? And then a voice from heaven said: "If in doubt, grab Baroque Motifs." So, I did. I truly think that it's almost impossible to stamp something ugly with this set. So, feeling like I couldn't lose. I started stamping. YIKES! It was not working! I should have taken a picture of my overflowing waste basket! But, I persisted and finally felt like this card might just come together. In the end it did . . . but man . . . what a struggle!

One little tip I learned in doing this project is: Do not stamp gray over yellow . . . it will come out green. But, yellow over gray seems to turn out just fine. (yeah, I can't figure that out either!)

Supplies I used to make this card:

Stamps: Baroque Motifs Paper: Basic Gray, YoYo Yellow, Going Gray, Whisper White Ink: YoYo Yellow, Going Gray, Basic Gray Accessories: Pewter Hardware, Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Distressing Tool, Foam Tape
