Great new (to me) colour combination

Yellow and Brown.   Spotted this on the Challenges for Days list on Saturday.   The Challenge is Inkspirational  and this colour combination excited me right away it has simply never occurred to me.

Choosing to make a tag with the TH die and kraft card I got a brown base right away.    The TH hot air balloon is one I picked up from a bargain bin at a craft show, not sure when but I do know the seller was Ali Craft.   I've really got to know this business since moving to Grimsby always so friendly with a great mix of stock.   They also have a monthly challenge which for January is Anything Goes!

The balloon was stamped on both the tag and onto white card.   The actual balloon and basket were coloured with Promarkers cut out and shaped to have dimension on the top of the tag.  The little banner on the side of the basket was replaced with ribbon and the stamped image it replaced added to the top of the balloon.   Some Washi tape with vintage images down one side a corrugated card die cut cog and a glassine paper die cut flower all help embellish the tag.  Twine wrapped young the tag and ribbon coloured yellow to match the overall colour theme popped through the hole at the top.  
Overall I'm really pleased with this little Steampunkesk colour poppin' tag so I'm sharing it with
Victorine Stamps - Use 3 Layers
Addicted to Stamps and More - Use Markers (both colouring the image and the ribbon)
