Hello Honey is a Tint in the Yellow-Orange Color Group and, as you saw with Crushed Curry, has a whole bunch of companions for a Monochromatic Color Scheme.
In this Friend card, I used Delightful Dijon for the contrasting color and So Saffron for the accents. I wanted a warm honey color combination that I wouldn’t quite get by using a Neutral in Delightful Dijon’s place.
The background, made with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, inspired me to make tiny bees as accents. I attached the large and medium Pearl Basic Jewels to a scrap of So Saffron and tried to draw wings with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. They didn’t turn out that well, so I tried drawing the wings first, then placing the Pearls, but that didn’t work, either. So I snipped around the pearls and tried something else.
Two of the small heart punch outs from the Owl Builder Punch fit together to make wings. I glued them together with a drop of glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen and let them dry. It didn’t take very long. Then I applied Dazzling Details all over the wings and placed the bee in the center. I spread the glitter glue out to coat the wings. These took longer to dry. I allowed about an hour, then assembled the card.
This color combination is also good for Thank You, Appreciation and Just Because cards. It will also make a nice summertime scrapbook page.
