GinaK CSS blog hop color challenge

 Hallo,
   Welcome to another Gina K Center Stage Alumni blog hop. This time we are having a color challenge - yellow, gray. white and one other color.
   If you are following the hop then you came to me from Vicki - http://allidoisstamp.blogspot.com/2013/08/stamp-tv-css-blog-hop.html  and I am sure she started us off with some great stuff!!!
    "Make sure to leave comments as you go along the hop because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, August 13 - on the Stamp TV home page.
  I chose an older set this time but it is one of my favorites!!! I love orchids and recently had one of my yellow ones bloom so that was my starting point today. I started by pulling out some gray and yellow papers, and as usual I couldn't decide which one of the 3 combo's I liked best - sooooo.... I did all 3.....
   I stamped the orchid onto white cardstock with memento black and colored them all with my prismacolor pencils - each one is a slightly different shade of yellow (although that is kinda hard to see here). My one other color ended up to be green - I edged the main panel with green ink and layered it to the yellow and some old 1970's yellow crochet trim and then to the gray .
  For embellishments I found some stickers with gray beads and then used silver (shiny gray right?) and some rhinestones on one card.
    Now I will send you off to Lori - http://smilingwhilestamping.blogspot.com/2013/08/css-group-color-challenge.html     for some more great ideas!!!
    All for today....Take Care
        Tera
