Onions Have Layers

...and so do cakes. Onions are fine, really, but when it comes to birthday layers, I think I prefer cake.

These cards came out of experiments with this color combination on Pinterest, but the most fascinating thing about them is how the yellow changes between the cards. It's exactly the same ink (Hero Arts lemon yellow), but notice how much greener it looks on the blue card than on the orange-and-red card.

It's not surprising, really, that it would look different, but it is definitely noticeable.

Do you prefer one color combination over the other?

stamps: Papertrey
ink: Hero Arts, StampinUp
paper: Papertrey
accessories: none


  1. I like them both! And planning on using the idea for my grandson's 14th birthday. I find this age really challenging to design for...and think this is the ticket! Thanks!
