Less Is More - Yellow

This week's challenge over at Less Is More - Week 66 is to use the colour yellow - yikes YELLOW! I did look seriously at a little yellow bumblebee stamp I have - but that would have been taking it a bit too far as it's very small indeed. So, I made this instead:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- Penny Black 'Hello sunshine' stamp (ha, if only - it's still wet and miserable here in Hampshire) - stamped using Versafine 'Vintage Sepia' ink pad and coloured using three different Pro Marker yellows

- image layered onto a backing from brown card from the snippets folder

- embossed lines on either side of some yellow grosgrain ribbon from the ribbon box

A fun card to make, once again the planning took longest!

Hi Di

The sepia and yellow go so well together. Great finished look.

I must remember to stamp in colours more often!!!

I hope you had a good Bank Holiday weekend.

Love Jules xx

Beautiful card Di, the sunflowers are just what we need to cheer the day up after such rubbish weather! Great idea to emboss either side of the ribbon, I'd not thought of that technique.

All your planning was well worth it :)

Take care xx

Beautiful sunflowers. They resemble a hot summer, which in Poland is yet to come for 1.5 months

That's gorgeous, Di! Love the sunflowers, and that ribbon is perfect

Kathleen said...

Well isn't it just the same story with the LIM, the planning takes more time than actually shows on the card. Love this, the ribon really adds the extra something.

Lovely card, Di, even if it is 'yellow'. Not my favourite colour either but I'm sure a lot of people love it. Elizabeth x
