This color challenge is definitely a challenge for me...not comfortable with the slate color...certainly not very springy. Finally decided on a flower that was a purple and yellow...either an iris or pansy Off to Cricut Design Space...the Flower Market . . . Perfect iris cut.
First went to my Inventory spreadsheet to see what paper packs had Eggplant...other than Paper Fundamentals there was only one paper pack with that color and I chose that to give some texture to the flower and the canary yellow was not difficult because it's in several paper packs.
Cut design papers for the flower and the slate for the stem. Didn't particularly care for the grey stem ... so cut another stem with the same yellow design paper, layered the pieces using the slate piece as a shadow for the stem. Cut another slate piece for the flower and layered also as a shadow. Layering the flower and stem with the slate for a shadow met the challenge of using slate (see photo below). Tried to include a slate frame but that just didn't give me the result I wanted either so used cardstock in the two primary colors.
