Tea for Two with CMC

Hi there.   It’s time for a bit of sunshine over at Color Me Creative.  We are being sponsored by Tiffany Doodles and the challenge is to use our favourite yellow combos. Sorry, I'm a bit late with my post this week.  I had prepared my card but hit a problem with my yellows and then didn't have another opportunity to post.
I chose this adorable little teaset image, isn’t it cute!  Sooo Disney!  It reminds me of the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ film.  I used this sketch over at Ribbon Carousel Challenge.image
Using Y08, Y06 and Y02 I coloured the teapot and cup/saucer and then coloured in my flowers with RV63 and RV66.  The hardest part of this to colour for me was trying to get the circular shape, I never quite know where to put the shading.  I had a bit of a problem with my yellows actually because I had coloured them and when I went back to them I realised they had a patchy grey hue to parts of the image.  I had a chat with gorgeous boss lady Suzanne and she reassured me that it was something that sometimes happens with yellows where the colour picks up the hue of the paper.  You learn something new every day, don’t you!  I will have to play around with my yellows a bit more I think.  I don’t use them often but actually they are really lovely.  My favourite colours are the golds, where you use the yellows too.  What’s your favourite colour combo?

Pop on over to our main CMC blog for all of the details of our latest challenge and join in the fun!  Don’t forget you’re not just restricted to Copic markers, you can also use ProMarkers, other alcohol markers or Coloured Pencils!!  Pop by the rest of the DT girls below to see what they’ve created;
