[DYSU] Challenge #30 - Yellow, Orange & Brown

Did you play along last week with us at Do You Stack Up (DYSU)? Thank you to all of those that participated. It was very inspiring to see so many interpretation! This week we have a color challenge to get your creative juices flowing...


Pull out your card stock, your pattern paper, your embellishments, your color pencils - anything that is Yellow, Orange & Brown.

I am featuring a digi from Gingerloft. I am not very well-versed with more realistically drawn digis, and it was great challenge to think of how to make a digi stand out. So I tried to gather inspiration from my pattern papers, my embellishments and other items. Here is what I came up with, and hope to do the talented artist from 
Gingerloft justice!

Its Your Big Day
Stamps: (Lion Cub Digi) Gingerloft; (Way out West) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:
 (Paper Basics Card Stock - Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink; (Basic Card Stock - Cream) Recollection; (Archaic) Basic Grey
Ink: (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils, Double-ended Art Marker) Prismacolor; (Hemp Cord) Darice; (Burlap) Hollmann Textil GmBH; (Vellum from Stationary Packaging) Recycled


I had a piece of vellum from stationary packing in my recycling stash. I thought it would be fun to create a zebra striped panel and started out with dark brown marker on kraft. It didn't show through, so I switched to black - I liked the results better. See the next picture for an up-close picture.

Its Your Big Day

The Archaic pattern paper actually had a lot of light blues hues. I amended it by shading in some yellow and orange hues in to fit the color challenge better. If you squint, you can see a little bit of the yellow peeking out behind the vellum.

I hope you join us this week at DYSU. Make sure to check out what the DT has cooked up and leave them a little bit of love, will ya?
