Kate's Yellow Roses

I've recently made a couple of cards with bizarre subject matter eg: pigeons, fuschia's & bowls (on the one card) which my twitter friend Kate found highly amusing so when it came to the subject of her birthday, I thought I'd ask her what she liked. The response was crafting singing/playing piano and yellow roses. 

Armed with that information and knowing we shared a wicked (some may say warped) sense of humour I sat down for a think! 

The roses were easy I make them all the time I'm just not a huge fan of yellow so decided to go with that fact. I then decided on a digi stamp from La Pashe she's a little karaoke singer known as Batouttahell from 'The Next Big Thing' CD Rom.
I then decided to be bold with my colouring virtually limiting myself to two colours, yellow and grey although I wasn't going to be cruel enough to give her grey skin lol. I used my Graph'its for her skin and Spectrum Noirs for the rest. A bit of embossing using 'Floral Vine'  embossalicious folder on yellow card matted onto some grey pearlised card. Using the same grey card I used my 'Spellbinders 5x7 Detailed Scallops' die decorated the edge with gems and matted my finished image. I was tempted to add a keyboard border but opted for yet a bit more yellow. A few yellow roses et voila! 
Happy Birthday @KateRockett you nutter!
