Embellish Magazine Bicycle Colour Trend Challenge

I have wanted to play along with Embellish Magazine's challenges since they started but I've just never found the time.  Well, this week I have - yay.  Here's the inspiration photo and colour palette

Cool photo, hey?  Bikes are so popular at the moment.  I've even got myself one to ride around on.  Here's what I made to submit for the challenge

Unfortunately, out of ALL the ink I own, I don't really have a yellow that matches with this - I thought More Mustard would be OK, but it's not.  Too bad we didn't get Crushed Curry - that would have been perfect.  Oh well, I'll have to wait until the new 2012-2014 In Colors come out here - I think the yellow one will be a good match.

Anyway, I tried to make my own DSP using the bicycle stamps from my Hero Arts On the Go Bike set, the sentiment and the arrow diecut is also from the same set.  I like the way it has turned out - I just wish I had of had the right yellow.  It's annoying me.  I probably could have gone with a slightly darker blue too.  Oh well, at least I finally got to play along.

Thanks for visiting.
