Always Question!

I've been playing with another colour challenge today, the CR84FN challenge hosted by Cupcakes Creations. LOVE this challenge, the colours chosen are almost always a combo that I don't normally use so I really need to get the imagination going! This week is no exception....yellow is included which is normally a 'no go' colour in my studio! That's why the challenge is so perfect.....I really like the effect I've achieved with the yellow being dominant, so will be using it more often!
 Enough waffling though, here is what I made..
Lots of yellow and pale blue for the painty background, then black stamping. I printed using the yellow, pale blue and also green as a 'zingy' accent..
I did a bit of machine stitching...
Added a quirky Zettiology image...
And a couple of chitchat words to finish...
Really like how the effect is still a bit dark and grungy but with a bit of a zesty twist!
Have a great week!
