Less Is More Colour Challenge - Yellow

Morning all, just a quick post while we still have broadband connected!  This week's LESS IS MORE challenge is a colour one, and the colour is YELLOW.  Eeeek.  Now I know yellow works perfectly well for flowers etc but I am on a campaign to have a character stamp showcased ......... it may take some time, lol!


I started off with a white base card but the whole thing looked too insipid so I swapped it for a yellow pearlised base card.  The image is Lili of the Valley Baby With Bunny and lightly washed with Distress Inks in three colours, Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw and Tattered Rose.  The matting layer and sentiment strip were lightly inked with Squeezed Lemonade too.  Sentiment is Hero Arts.

And just before I go, and to get you laughing, here is my first attempt at the Yellow challenge, which has since been filed under R.


Hugs, Sxx

I think Mandi and Chrissy should honour your campaing, and showcase this card. I think it is a really sweet card. And Lots of yellow so it fits the challenge perfectly :o)

Your first attempt is not so bad as you think. I kind of like it.

oh the first card is so sweet - and those little flowers are cheerful.. maybe you could matt the flowers so they have a yellow border and will pop out from the white background more
