Yellow and Gray

Oops!!! This post has been published on 22/08/2012 but somehow is popping back ! Needless to say the challenge is closed...
The Impression Obsession challenge this week is Yellow and Grey. I don't use grey very often but...
The main image is Rose (E1332) by Gary Robertson, which I colored in pencil on white card. I then cut around the leaves with scissors before die-cutting with a rectangle die.

For the background, I used an old piece of handmade marbled paper, a piece of white card letterpressed in grey ink with a cuttlebug folder, a scalloped die-cut and a yellow circle stamped in grey ink with  Cover a card Rose Lace (CC087).
In the bright light of day, I decided that the yellow card I used was too yellow and knocked it back with a pigment inkpad, including the already stamped circle, which is why the grey is not as dark as I would have wished !

For embellishments I added a die-cut border (Pristine by Memory Box), flower (several layers die-cut with 3 sizes of  Spellinders' Peonies Nestabilitie) and leaves (Memory Box).

Hope you'll like this,
